“CHRIST’S FOUR REASONS TO AVOID ANXIETY” PART 2 (Under the Juniper Tree S5E6)

Under the Juniper Tree Season 5, Episode 6 for Thursday, March 30, 2017

Reason #2: If God Cares for the Lesser Beings, He will care for us as well (V. 26, 28-30).

  • Christ speaks of the birds of the air (v. 26).
    • Three nots are spoken of: sow, reap, gather.
    • When was the last time you saw a bird driving a tractor? Combine? Even pushing a shopping cart at the local grocery store?
    • Despite this fact, they are taken care of by God.
  • He turns His attention to the lilies of the field (v. 28-30).
    • The flowers of the planet do not toil or spin. That is, they do not have to work hard for their apparel.
    • As beautiful as they are, they do not have the capacity to anxiety as we do.
    • Even as rich and powerful as Solomon was, he could not wear robes as pure of white as the lilies.
  • Today, they are beautiful. Tomorrow, they are put in the oven.
    • Reference to baking method.
    • Here today. Gone tomorrow.
  • Main point—If God is willing to care for these lesser beings, then He will care for us.
    • Are you much better than they?
    • Shall He not much more clothe you?
