We Should Yield Not to Anxiety
Interwoven Gospels

Then Jesus said to His disciples, "For this reason I say to you, be not anxious as to your life, what ye shall eat; nor as to your body, what ye shall put on. For the life is more than the food, and the body than raiment. Consider the ravens, how they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them. How much more valuable are ye than the birds! Now which of you, by being anxious, is able to add a cubit to his stature? If then ye are not even able to do the least thing, why are ye anxious about the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they labor not, nor spin; yet I say to you. Not even Solomon, in all his glory, was clothed as one of these. Now if God thus clothes the grass, which today is in the field, and tomorrow is cast into an oven, by how much more will He clothe you, O ye of little faith? And seek ye not what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, and be not in anxious suspense; for the nations of the world seek after all these things. But your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. Nevertheless seek ye His kingdom, and these things shall be added to you. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good will to give you the kingdom. Sell the things ye have, and give alms; make for yourselves purses that grow not old, an unfailing treasure in the heavens, where no thief draweth near, nor moth destroyeth. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
