today, i got an sms informing me that an ex-colleague of mine passed away. I feel sad :(
so i was praying for her family and was lead to the bible passage below.
for those of you out there feeling a little down, uncertain about future and thinking of the futility of everything ..... here's something for you that Jesus said :
Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on.
Life is more than food and the body is more than clothing.
Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds?
And which of you by worrying can add on cubit to his stature?
If you are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest?
Consider the lilies, how they grow : they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomororw is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith?
And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink nor have an anxious mind.
For all these things the nations of the world seek after and your Father knows that you need these things.
But seek the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added to you
Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom
Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
-- Luke 12 :22-34
