Life is more than food
For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.
Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.
Dear blessed in Christ, wishes and greetings in the matchless name of Lord Jesus.
Greater are the things of the living God. Our Lord makes it straight that we do not need to worry about anything in this world. Yes, why should we worry, when our Creator and our Comforter is with us. The above subject verse clearly puts into us the confidence and hope in the Almighty and not to worry. More importantly, our Lord asked us to cast all our cares upon Him and not to worry. The Scriptures says that our Lord cares for us.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.1 Peter 5:7
The amazing God knows all our needs. Therefore, He says not to worry about our lives or about our bodies. We need not be anxious about what to eat or what to wear. Putting our minds on the things of the flesh will only weaken our spirit. This does not mean food and clothing are not required for us. They are absolutely essential. But by seeking luxury in those things, will only make us distant to our Lord. Yes, God knows all our requirements and He provides to all. Yes, our Lord provides all our needs not only to us, but to all His creation.
Therefore brethren, it is not in things what the flesh seeks, but in those what our spirit seeks in the Lord. Therefore, as the Bible says, let us first seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. And all our things will be taken care off in Jesus’ matchless name. Amen.
