Matthew 6:25-27 (NIV) “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
Jesus teaches us so clearly in these verses.
I’m going to let you read a recent blog post by my son Matt who has expanded my thinking on these verses. Click here —
Matt comes from a long line of people who enjoy birds. His daddy spends a lot of time and money keeping our feeders full of seeds. Matt’s daddy learned by watching HIS daddy, and I’m quite sure the example goes back even further. Suffice it to say that the Pearson men enjoy and appreciate birds. I know for a fact that when my husband has a chance to watch hummingbirds, a red-headed woodpecker, goldfinches, a hawk or an eagle, he considers it to be a good day indeed. Perhaps more of us should take the time to stop, listen and watch birds. After all, Jesus told us to do it. Examples of God’s care surround us everyday.
