"Take no thought"
The following passage occurs immediately after Christ's story of the rich man that was satisfied with his worldly riches but who was not rich toward God. The phrase "take thought" speaks of worry or excessive concern regarding the things of this life. It is important to understand that the promises in the following verses apply to God's children (those who have repented of their sins and trusted Christ as their Savior) and not to those who are lost. It does not promise riches, but provision for our basic needs. It is dependent upon us seeking the Kingdom of God (his will and righteousness).
22. And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit.
26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?
29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
