New Living Translation:
“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?”
“So I tell you to stop worrying about what you will eat, drink, or wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothes?”
“So I tell you, don’t worry about the things you need to live—what you will eat, drink, or wear. Life is more important than food, and the body is more important than what you put on it.’’
Beloved, this scripture is emphasizing to us again that anxiety is unnecessary.
Be not anxious for the future, how you shall live next year, or when you are old, or what you shall leave behind you, not as if you must not plan but do not be anxious about your plans. God has given "life," shall not He who has conferred the ‘’greater" blessing be willing to confer the "less?" He who has displayed "so great" goodness as to form the body, and breathe into it the breath of life, will surely "follow up" the blessing, and confer the "smaller" favor of providing that that body shall be clothed, and that life preserved.
