Matthew 6:26
Jesus said, “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns;
yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?


esus asked us to consider the birds of the sky that we may learn to live everyday without worries and fears. Though the birds do not have the ability to sow and reap, Jesus says that God, our Father, feeds all the birds.

Now the Lord turns to us and asks, “Are ye not much better than they?” In other words, we are more precious to God than the birds. He is committed to taking care of His children more than all other creatures on earth. So, we should not worry about anything about our life on earth. If the Lord cares for the birds, then we can be absolutely confident that He will care much more for us.

In these days, children suffer from many kinds of phobias or fears. Some are afraid that they will be rejected by schoolmates or other children in the church. Some are worried about their appearance. Some are concerned that they are too big. Some others are concerned that they are too short. Some are worried about exams in school. There are also those who are so concerned about what clothes they ought to wear.

Children, the Lord wants us not to worry at all. He wants us to believe that He will look after all our needs and help us with our problems. We should not allow our minds to be troubled, and worry about our appearance, abilities or achievements. God loves all His children very dearly, no matter what their situation is. He cares for them all.

Remember, He loved us so much that He died to save us. So we can be very assured that He will look after us all the days of our lives. “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32).

Jesus says, “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:31-33).
