28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,
29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
In v. 28, Jesus said the lilies do not work or spin clothes. But in v. 29, Jesus said that they wear clothes more beautiful than Solomon’s clothes in all his glory (1 Ki. 10:14-27). The glory of Solomon does not match the glory of the flowers. The reason is that God Himself clothes the flowers of the field.
In v. 30, Jesus said that God clothes the grass of the field. But the grass of the field lives a short life. It is thrown into the oven as fuel for fire. It is here today and gone tomorrow. The grass of the field also lives an insignificant life. It is just used as fuel. Now if God clothes the grass that lives a short life, and is worthless, God will also clothe followers of Christ.
Jesus calls believers who worry about food, “You of little faith.” Jesus calls believers who do not trust God, “You of little faith.”
Are you anxious about your food and clothing today? O you of little faith! Do not worry about your needs. God will take care of you!
