The Sparrow And The Lily

by Darla Noble

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time; casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you.

1 Peter 5:6-7

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you - you of little faith?” (Matthew 6:25-30 NIV)

If God takes the time to care for these things – things He created, but aren’t created in His image (like we are), don’t you think He’s going to make doubly sure we have what we need?

Jesus said it. I believe it. Will you?


> Jesus,
Thank You for teaching me through Your Word.
Thank You for assuring me that I am well cared for and loved.
In Your Name, I pray, Amen.
