Be the lily!

Matthew 6:27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life.

This is Jesus asking us a direct and very eye opening question.  Who can add a single hour to their life by worrying?  No one of course.  You can’t add a single hour to your life doing anything.  When God’s plan is ready to take us it will.  His will be done!

So why then do we worry?  Jesus talks about the birds and the flowers not having a care in the world about what clothes them or where they will eat next.  He says in verse 28, “See how the lilies of the field grow.  They do not labor or spin.”  Spin?  Could he be talking about how we run around like chickens with our heads cut off, trying to please everyone and get everything done perfectly?  I believe so.
