"see those birds over there?" jesus said..."where do they get their food? perhaps they have pantries all stocked up? cabinets full of food?"...who's ever seen a bird with a bag of groceries?..."no," jesus said. "they don't need to worry about that. because god knows what they need and he feeds them." ..."little flock, you are more important than the birds! the birds don't worry about things, and god doesn't want his children to worry either. god loves to look after the birds and HE LOVES to look after you, too."
i've mentioned the jesus storybook bible over and over again, and i'll probably never stop. we love it. and the incredible illustrations by jago silver only enhance the beautiful text. he has a shop where you can purchase prints from the bible! we chose this one, because it's something we really need to be reminded of in our family. jesus cares for us, and he'll meet our every need. we don't need to fret about this or that, because we can trust him.
“therefore i tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. are you not of more value than they? and which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?" matthew 6:25-27
