Matthew 6:28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

We were at a State Park and I had the joy of taking this photo. The dragonfly on the lily flower reminded me of the above verse. God provides for all of His creation. The dragonfly has no problem with relying on God to provide. We humans think we must worry and stress about our provisions. We all have some work to do to receive God’s provision. The dragonfly had to flap its wings and fly to the lily. God give us physical bodies and minds that enable us to work. Work is not a “four letter word” of negativity. It is a privilege and joy to be able to work. When we have the problem with work it is because we are not working unto to Lord. He has said in all we do we are to do it unto Him. It matters not if we are collecting garbage, washing dishes or running a country. All we do is in fellowship and to the glory of God. Our question is are we complainers or are we thankful for the abilities God gives us and the provisions He gives us through these abilities?
