“Somewhere a plant grows—a stalk of wheat, an ear of corn—and this assures us that our God reigns.
We have so much to do, so many worries, so little money, so many hardships. We pray about these things, yet before we complete a sentence we are off solving our problems or fretting about what could be. If only Jesus’ words would slow us down so we could listen and consider the realities of our Father’s care. It certainly would be nice to consider birds and lilies (Matt 6:25-34).”
