Heavenly Father's Day

John Collins06/17/2012
Matthew 6 tells us not to be anxious about our lives.

Do not worry about what you will eat or drink, nor about the clothing you will wear.  Our lives are more than just food, and our bodies more than clothing.

Take a look at the birds of the air.  They do not plant seeds to harvest or reap the harvest into barns, yet everything they need is provided for them.  Your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not more valuable than the birds?

Which of you, being anxious, can add a single hour to the span of your lives?  

Why are we anxious about the things of this earth?  Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow.  They neither toil nor spin, yet Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these!  If God clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and is eaten tomorrow, he will clothe us also.  

Therefore, don't worry about where to get your next meal, or where you will get your next drink.  Don't worry about what you will wear.  Gentiles seek after all these things, and the heavenly Father knows that you need them all.

Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and these things will be given to you!

As Christians, we should ask ourselves:  Are we thankful for our heavenly Father on this Father's Day?  Are we thankful that he provides for us, and we do not have to be anxious about anything our bodies need?  Do we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness?
