Consider The Ravens

by Katie Armstrong:

“But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.”
— Luke 12:31 (NIV)

In Luke 12, Jesus reminds us that worrying about our life can do nothing for us: “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?”

With so many distractions, and a brain that loves to run with the wind, this is a constant reminder that I need as I can easily get caught up in what I can do, and be taken from what God can do — a recipe for wipeout if not caught, and released.

Jesus says, “Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!”

So whatever it is that consumes your mind and drains your peace, whether it be rent at the end of the month, your child’s expenses, loans or overdue bills that you have, or something unexpected that you don’t know how you’ll provide for, surrender it to God today.

“And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows you need them.”
— Luke 12:29-30 (NIV)
