Jesus asks us in this passage why we are anxious about clothing. He points out that God has done a great job clothing the lilies of the field and they don’t worry about clothes at all. The fashion industry exists because you and I are anxious about our clothing. Think about it, we do not just wear clothing to cover us and to be durable. We have come to believe that we also need to be in style. Style changes rapidly so you and I will stay anxious and keep buying things we do not need. What if we simplified our wardrobe as a spiritual issue? What if we worried less about what we wore? I love wearing cute clothes. I just do not want my clothes to complicate my life so that I have less room for God.
God, are you inviting me to simplify my clothing? Amen.
