Gift Of Peace (Short Poem)

The birds of the air don’t plant nor harvest,
yet they are fed without fear or dread.
During migration, where their numbers are the largest,
never will they worry about being misled.

Trees, bees and living things have something in common:
they do not worry or feel anxious about tomorrow.
Their needs are met by a Designer so sovereign,
and so will man’s needs be met in his time of sorrow.

 “Look at the birds: they do not plant seeds, gather a harvest and put it in barns; yet your Father in heaven takes care of them! Aren’t you worth much more than birds? Can any of you live a bit longer by worrying about it? And why worry about clothes? Look how the wild flowers grow: they do not work or make clothes for themselves.But I tell you that not even King Solomon with all his wealth had clothes as beautiful as one of these flowers. It is God who clothes the wild grass—grass that is here today and gone tomorrow, burned up in the oven. Won’t he be all the more sure to clothe you? What little faith you have!” – Matthew 6:26-30
