Jesus calls us to reverence our bodies and hold as sacred our precious lives and the well-being of all Creation while at the same time placing our trust in a loving and provident God.
Through his images of birds soaring in the sky and wildflowers flourishing uncultivated, Jesus offers us a visual of living in the present moment, untroubled by anxiety over what tomorrow and all the “what-ifs” the future may hold. He reminds us to do the same, to live with an awareness and acceptance of the now and to give our concerns about tomorrow over to the heart of our God who never abandons.
