Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the 𝘉𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘈𝘯𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘔𝘢𝘯 broadcast and the 𝘏𝘢𝘯𝘬 𝘜𝘯𝘱𝘭𝘶𝘨𝘨𝘦𝘥 podcast, reads from Matthew 6: 19-24 and then focuses on verses 25–34. “I tell you, do not worry about your life. What you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food? And the body more important than clothes?” Jesus here assumes that His disciples worry. Worry about earthly and bodily needs turns our hearts from God. Will He who gave us our lives fail to give us that which is necessary to sustain them? Simple illustration: “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?” And what does worry achieve? Worry does not add to life; it inexorably shortens it. “Then why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin, yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will He not much more clothe you, oh you of little faith?” This is a classic example of the lesser to the greater argument…if God clothes the grass of the field, surely, He will provide common clothes to His children. Such things should be self-evident! Our trust in God should dispel every worry—worry that is evidence of a lack of faith.
