Matthew 6:31 Meaning and Commentary

Matthew 6:31

Therefore take no thought
That is, for the morrow, as it is explained, ( Luke 6:34 ) for it is lawful to take proper care and thought for present food, drink, and raiment; but not to be anxiously concerned for futurity;

saying, what shall we eat? or what shall we drink? or wherewithal
shall we be clothed?
These are a repetition of the several things instanced in, and are the very language and expressions of men of little faith; as in the above citation, (rxml lkwa hm) , "what shall I eat tomorrow?"

30 If God dresses grass in the field so beautifully, even though it's alive today and tomorrow it's thrown into the furnace, won't God do much more for you, you people of weak faith?
31 Therefore, don't worry and say, ‘What are we going to eat?' or ‘What are we going to drink?' or ‘What are we going to wear?'

33 Instead, desire first and foremost God's kingdom and God's righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
