6: 25-34 is a wonderful exhortation for us not to worry about our needs. God
says look at the beauty and magnificence of my creation; the birds of the air

you, we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat” (2
Thess 3:10). But, if we trust God and do our part we don’t need to worry, we
need to trust God that everything will be taken care of; ends will more than
meet. Trust God, take the limits off of him; he will provide.
