Jesus repeats the same command several times over the course of ten verses. He appeals to logic, provides examples from everyday life, and offers convincing proofs along the way. Yet still we fail. “Don’t worry!” he says again and again. A loving God who wants to provide for you is in control. “Stop worrying!” he repeats. Doesn’t it make sense that God is not planning to abandon you? “Quit worrying!” he says. And focus on eternal things rather than the paraphernalia. Still, we worry. Why? Because we don’t believe Him. Or rather, our faith in our ability to provide for ourselves outweighs our faith that God will do it. Oh we of little faith!
