Luke 12:24

Overview - Luke 12
Christ preaches to his apostles to avoid hypocrisy, and fearfulness in publishing his doctrine;
13 warns the people to beware of covetousness, by the parable of the rich man who set up greater barns.
22 We must not be over careful of earthly things,
31 but seek the kingdom of God;
33 give alms;
35 be ready at a knock to open to our Lord whensoever he comes.
41 Christ's ministers are to see to their charges,
49 and look for persecution.
54 The people must take this time of grace;
57 because it is a fearful thing to die without reconciliation.

Luke 12:24  (King James Version)
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?
 


the ravens
The raven is a species of the corvus, or crow tribe, of the order Picae, known by its large size, its plumage being of a bluish black, and tail roundish at the end. It was probably selected by our Lord as being unclean.
