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 6:26

Some British railway line workers found a thrush’s nest under a rail. Peacefully sitting on her eggs, the hen was undisturbed by the roar of the passing trains above her.

Someone has written a little verse which goes:

“Said the robin to the sparrow, ‘I should really like to know, Why these anxious human beings Rush about and worry so.’ Said the sparrow to the robin, ‘Friend, I think that it must be, That they have no heavenly Father Such as cares for you and me.'”

The Lord Jesus used the carefree attitude of the birds to emphasize the fact that worrying is unnatural. I am learning in my own life, day by day, to keep my mind centred on Christ, and the worries and anxieties and concerns of the world pass, and nothing but perfect peace is left in the human heart. God has taken the responsibility for our care and worry.


Matthew 6:25-34.


Lord Jesus, I'm happiest when I'm fully trusting You. This day help me to be constantly grateful for Your care and faithfulness. Amen.
