Do not worry about tomorrow

One reason un believers   store up treasures on earth is because they want security, and they have no trust in God. Disciples of Jesus are not be so. There should a life free of worry (Phil 4:6, Be anxious about nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving make your request known to God).
Of course they  should plan, and work, and do what they can to provide for their families (Gen 3:19 In the sweat of your face you will eat bread, until you return to the ground; for you were taken from it; for your dust and you will return to dust.)
(2 Thess 5:10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you that if anyone would not work he should not eat).
But their trust in God be such that they are not anxious even about the basic necessities of life – food, water   and clothing. If they worry it is because faith is small.
Believers are not to act like unbelievers, as though they had no heavenly father to look after them. If disciples do their part, God will surely do His.
Nature can teach us spiritual lesions.  The God who is kind to birds will not forget His own children. But even birds do not sit on limb and expect God to drop food in their mouths. They should build their nests and gather food God provides.
‘’Little faith” – little faith does not mean no faith. Some have the faith that enables them to receive the forgiveness of sins and eternal life, yet not enough to escape their worries and fears, or to give them confidence in times of danger, or to accomplish seemingly impossible things by God’s grace, or to help others as they might otherwise do.
There are four good reasons in Matt 6:25-34 why believers should not worry.
First, the lord Jesus three times forbids it (Vs 25,3134)
Second, worry is completely useless (Vs 27).
Third worry makes believers act like unbelievers (vs 32).
Forth, believers have a heavenly Father to look after them and give them all they need (Vs30,31).
A fifth worry dishonors God. It is as if a person is saying “my heavenly   father is unable or unwilling to look after me.”
God does not deny that needs will occur or that troubles and difficulties will come.
“Do not let your heart be troubled.”
