February Worries

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your birthday, what you will eat or drink or about your body, what you will wear. Is not your whole life more important than your one special day and your year more important than this recognition. Consider the birds of the air, they do not even know their birthday and yet your heavenly father feeds them and they sing with joy. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour of fun to your life?

And why do you worry about gifts? See how the flowers of the field grow. They don’t make lists or worry and yet, Solomon in all his splendor was not blessed with that much beauty. If that is how God gifts the grass of the field which is here today and tomorrow fuels a fire, will he not much more bless you, oh you of little faith? 

So do not worry saying, “ what will we eat, who will we celebrate with, and will it be fun” for the pagans run after these things and your heavenly Father knows what you need and what you want. But seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and He’ll provide for your needs…and probably bless you even more than that. Therefore don’t worry about your birthday, for your birthday will worry about itself. Each day has enough worry of its own…especially Valentine’s day… 

(based on Matthew 6:25-34 and my own neuroses)
