Luke 12:26 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 12:26

If ye then be not able to do that which is least
As to make the smallest addition to a man's stature, or rather to add one moment to his days:

why take ye thought for the rest?
which are much greater, as to preserve the body in its whole bulk, and all its parts, or for the feeding and clothing of it, or rather for the continuation and preservation of life to any length of time; for if it cannot be by all a man's care and solicitude lengthened out one moment longer than is the pleasure of God, how should it be by such anxiety continued for months and years?

Luke 12:26 In-Context

25 "Has anyone by fussing before the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch?
26 If fussing can't even do that, why fuss at all?
27 Walk into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They don't fuss with their appearance - but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.
28 If God gives such attention to the wildflowers, most of them never even seen, don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?
