Matthew 6:28-30

And, 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, O you of little faith? NIV

I picked these verses to start with, because I knew where to find them.  I love this passage.  I love that He specifically notes that flowers “don’t toil or spin.”  I spend a lot of time toiling and spinning.  And, for what?  God doesn’t care for me because I work hard, He cares for me because He delights in His creations, especially His children.  I don’t want to be one “of little faith,” working and worrying.  I want to be one who rests in the peace of my Holy Father.
