Fowls and flowers represent the creatures and the adornments of the Father’s house as God is our Provider; disciples represent the children of the Father’s house. It is an appeal to our common everyday observations and experiences, that if the Father cares, in a very marked way, for the creatures and the adornment.
“26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? “
Man is a part of God’s creation, just as truly as fowls and flowers. God knows man and all his wants are bodily and spiritual; seeing that God created him, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.
God Will Provide
God cares for the grass with flowers in the spring. Which is also scorched by the sun and burnt as fuel in the summer. He feeds the wild birds. If we can “live according to nature” we shall be provided for.
Jesus urges us to not worry, but to seek the Kingdom of God. When we focus on God and his Kingdom, we’re able to take the focus off of our other issues. Rest assured that God does love you, no matter what your past has been. He wants you to walk in the freedom that comes from knowing this.
If you treasure the things of heaven, then your heart will be set on heavenly things, and your life will be spent in gaining eternal rewards that cannot be destroyed or stolen.
Jesus gives a clear command that we are not to have a fearful concern over the basic needs of life such as food, drink and clothing. Jesus could have simply given the command and left it there with full expectation that we should obey Him. If God is your master, then He is the one who will take care of you.
