Jesus is conforming what scripture has always said in HisSermon on the Mountto be content & trust that the Lord will provide. Especially when we love God & please Him with a willing sacrifice of our worship. Father Abraham was willing to give the Lord, the worship God demanded, & not only Abraham but his son who God gave to him in old age. God had asked Abraham to give up his son (Genesis 22), Abraham had a heavy heart but he did what his God asked him to do. As Abraham tied his son up & was about to give up his Issac, the Lord provided another sacrifice. So grateful, that the God Abraham loved & more thankful cause God provide another sacrifice for worship, Abraham gave God a new name that mean;
Sometimes I laugh at my mother when she complains about when a bird builds a nest on the house & asks to sweep it away. Sometimes I am amazed at what I find in a bird’s nest. It is normal to see sticks & leaves, but once I saw the plastic that holds a six pack of soda or beer together. Jesus tells His followers, the Lord provides for birds of the air & those that don’t fly. The Lord covers them with beautiful feathers, some birds feathers so wonderful, that some like a peacock like to put them on a display. Jesus is telling His followers at the mount, don’t worry about your life, don’t worry about clothes or food. The Lord who wasYahweh-Yireh, for father Abraham, still provides for you. The birds of sky & ground don’t work, they live, fly, build nests , reproduce & feed their young. If a bird can make uses of something like a piece of plastic that a trash litter threw away. The Lord God can provide for me & you, just do like the old hymn says, “Trust & Obey.” God bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you & so do I. Sam H.
