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?"

Matthew 6:31 In-Context

29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these.
30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?
31 Therefore do not worry, saying, "What will we eat?' or "What will we drink?' or "What will we wear?'
32 For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
33 But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
