Are you not of more value than birds?
If God so clothes the grass of the field…
Will He not much more clothe you? (from Matthew 6)
It’s an argument a fortiori–
A bit of logic,
If the less likely is true,
Then the more likely is true.
If a thousand dollars has value,
Then ten thousand dollars has more value.
If God cares meticulously
For an unsung bird
Or a fleeting flower,
How much more does He care for you?
When unwelcome worries creep in
And you’re trying to shake off the shackles
I bless you to think of the lilies and sparrows.
If you’re more treasured than
Random fowl and foliage,
You can be at least as peaceful
