Matthew 6:25 (New International Version)
25 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?
No worries. That sums up this passage in two words.
No worries. It is a great Australian expression. Sometimes it reflects simply a sunnily optimistic attitude to life. Sometimes it reflects a lack of engagement, even recklessness. It might even be called a “devil-may-care” attitude, the exact opposite of what Jesus is saying here, for Jesus bases his instruction “do not worry” on the fact of the matter that the “Father-does-care”.
Jesus’ reasoning is simple. God cares enough to provide food for birds and apparel for flowers. God cares for you more than that, so God will certainly provide for you.
Jesus is not saying that food and drink, the body and clothing, are of no importance, but that they are of little importance. Life is more than that. In first place is God – his kingdom and his righteousness – and everything else follows.
Too easy. Not a problem. No worries.
