October 26: Why worry?

“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.

Matthew 6:31-32

Our good friend Patch the Pirate has put a song together talking about those who worry.

Worry Worthog

What’s interesting is that Jesus addresses the basic needs of mankind. Food and clothing. Abraham Maslow categorized these as basic physiological needs.

If God can take care of the basic needs that we have, can’t we trust Him with all of the other needs that we have?
