God also said, "Look, I have given you every seed-bearing plant on the surface of the entire earth, and every tree whose fruit contains seed. This food will be for you,
for all the wildlife of the earth, for every bird of the sky, and for every creature that crawls on the earth-- everything having the breath of life in it. [I have given] every green plant for food." And it was so.

If that's how God clothes the grass, which is in the field today and is thrown into the furnace tomorrow, how much more will He do for you-- you of little faith?
Don't keep striving for what you should eat and what you should drink, and don't be anxious.

"But seek His kingdom, and these things will be provided for you.
