Sometimes, an idea just seems to keep coming back to you and today's post is an example. Yesterday, I used the text below for a post on gratefulness and today, when I saw this beautiful picture some birds, I remembered the words of Jesus once again. Both the top and bottom pictures show many types and I would be hard pressed to choose a favorite, because they are all beautiful!!!
And so we come to this wonderful text once again...
Matthew, Chapter 6 (WEB)
24 “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You can’t serve both God and Mammon. 25 Therefore I tell you, don’t be anxious for your life: what you will eat, or what you will drink; nor yet for your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 See the birds of the sky, that they don’t sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you of much more value than they?
27 “Which of you, by being anxious, can add one moment to his lifespan? 28 Why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They don’t toil, neither do they spin, 29 yet I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, won’t he much more clothe you, you of little faith?
The thing that I will remember about most about this passage is not the beauty of the birds or the flowers, but rather the love of both The Master and the Slave. God loves us and we love Him- and he takes care of his own, period!!!!
