In this passage of scripture, Jesus uses birds to convey a powerful message to us. As silly as it may sound, birds don’t farm or own a place for shelter; yet God provides shelter and food for birds. If God cares even for His creation, why do we sometimes forget that God cares and will provide for us? We should never let worry get the best of us because we have Jesus who will provide our needs. In Psalms 37:25, David writes, “ I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” God will always provide for us, but it may not be what we want or think we deserve. However, God knows exactly what we need, and we should never worry; but instead rely upon and trust in Him.
And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
Luke 12:22-24 (KJV)
