Fret Not

Therefore I say unto you, do not worry about your life . . .

. . . what you will eat or what you will drink . . .
. . . nor about your body, what you will put on.

Is not life more than food . . .

. . . and the body more than clothing?

Look at the birds of the air . . .

. . .  for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns . . .

. . . yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not of more value than they? 
 Matthew 6:25,26

Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God.  But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Do not fear therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows.  Luke 12: 6,7

Therefore do not worry, saying, "What shall we eat?" or "What shall we drink?" or "What shall we wear?"  For after all these things the Gentiles seek.  For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.  Matthew 6:31-34

Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land and feed on His faithfulness.  Delight yourself also, in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart . . . Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.  Cease from anger , and forsake wrath; do not fret - it only leads to harm . . .  I have been young and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread.  Psalm 37:3,4,7,8,25

Therefore, humble yourselves under the might hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him for He cares for you.  1 Peter 5:6,7

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus . . . And my God will supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen  Philippians 4:6,7,19,20
