SUBSTANCE OVER STYLE

Luke 12:27-28

Luk 12:27 Think about how the flowers grow; they do not work or produce clothing. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed like one of these!
Luk 12:28 And if this is how God clothes the wild grass, which is here today and tomorrow is tossed into the fire to heat the oven, how much more will he clothe you, you people of little faith!

worry and the wardrobe

For many in Jesus’ day, clothing was the symbol of success and status. So people went out of their way to dress well, because it affected how they were treated. Even today, I notice that when I dress well, people tend to pay more attention to me. But pursuit of better, more expensive clothing can steal time and effort from pursuing true maturity, so Jesus warns us all not to let concern over the wardrobe consume us.

LORD, we choose to trust you to give us all we need.
