The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!" He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?"

Don't worry and say, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear?' The people who don't know God keep trying to get these things, and your Father in heaven knows you need them.  Seek first God's kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well.

Matthew 06:31-33 (NIRV)

Comment: Our Father knows our needs and is able to supply all, so trust in His wisdom and power to provide, and leave it to the unbeliever to be anxious about worldy things, for they do not know God.

Matthew 06:28-30

Why worry about clothes? Look how the wild flowers grow. They don't work hard to make their clothes. But I tell you that Solomon with all his wealth wasn't as well clothed as one of them. God gives such beauty to everything that grows in the fields, even though it is here today and thrown into a fire tomorrow. He will surely do even more for you! Why do you have such little faith?

Matthew 06:28-30 (CEV)

Comment: Cast your cares on God, trust in Him who is able to provide for all things, for things of this world fade and wither away.

Matthew 06:27

And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life?

Matthew 06:27 (AMP)

Comment: God made us as He designed, do not be anxious about life, but be content and trust in Him to provide for our needs.
