“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” – Matthew 6:26
It is very easy for us to think about all the unfortunate stuff. We always think about our personal problems, our financial problems, and how we can never survive this selfish world. Now, our verse today is actually like a slap in our face. It’s all about how foolishly we are worried about things, and how we should be faithful in God. We are so foolish to worry all the time about how we will not have food on our tables or how we are financially poor we are. However, God wants to remind us that even birds in the air do not sow or reap or store in barns, they still got food to eat. Our Father in heaven feeds them, how much more us?
God wants us to understand that we are special and that we are truly loved by the God who made the heavens and earth. We will not be rejected, we will not be left out because our God loves us so much. Even the birds in the air or other animals are able to exist without the knowledge on how to make food, or how to produce because God takes care of them. So, we are the most precious creation, and God loves us so much that even His Son came to the world to save us from our sins. We must always remember to ask God for help. We must be dependent on Him. Foolishly worrying about things that can promise to provide is foolishness.
Therefore, instead of just foolishly worrying, we must become faithful to God. Let us depend and submit everything to God. After all, He is our Provider. He provides us with everything we need to survive. He even provides us with luxurious things, and He provides us with a lot of things that we don’t need because He is a God of favors too. Thus, we must never worry about tomorrow, for God is our provider and He will not forsake us. He will always be there to support us and love us. May we never forget this truth and may we always praise our God who saved us from our sins, who created the heavens and the earth, and who increase our faith.
