“Matthew 6:26  “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?”


God knows. Our heavenly father knows. HE cares, He loves, and He wants the best for me. Yet in everyone’s life come doubts. Doubts are ok. Doubts are a part of living.  I can easily doubt my own ability or even the ability of our government to control itself.  Doubt comes to us wrapped up as a feeling. Doubts are not ideal, but I can and do work through them. I can confront doubt like any other feeling.  I can let my head, my intellect grasp a promise, a truth, and the doubt slinks back into its black cave. Through acceptance of this truth, I let it push me to a better understanding.  

The issue Jesus is teaching on the grassy hillside is the negative attitude spewing forth out of doubt. Anxiety and worry are simply symptoms that you are too close to the world and not close enough to God.  He knows your needs. I must focus on the provision of God.  I am too valuable to sow, reap and stow the cares of the world.
