Let Tomorrow take Care of Itself

When I was younger I always asked my parents how to meet a deadline!They answered me from two points of reference, the Holy Bible andthe remains of cultural traditions. I find no better story in the
Bible than the section in Matthew chapter 6 verses 25 through 34.Likewise I have located an Ashanti proverb from reasons told to them by both their Mothers. Every thing I needed my parents provided. Along the way I had lessons on being independent and taking care of myself. I felt life was beautiful and pleasant. My allowance could even be extended for special purposes, just by asking. Today, our society would be more civil and tolerant if people took the time to ask along with being courteous to others.

MT verse 26... Fowls of the air, for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns... yet your heavenly father feeds them.
Verse 28... Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow, they toil not, neither do they spin:
Verse 29... Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Verse 30... if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith...
Verse 31... take no thought what shall we eat? what shall we drink? or shall we be clothed...
Verse 32... your heavenly Father knows that ye have needs of all things...
Verse 33... seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness...
Verse 34... Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself better than they. Sufficient unto the day

Reading daily bible study has shown me yesterday and given me a guide for today. I can make a purple skirt now on my own. I didn't realize that in the beginning.

Ashanti Proverb
No one ties up a wisdom-bag, and takes it and puts it away in a box and comes and stands in the courtyard and says, 'Explain the matter to me.'
What wisdom tells us it that God is responsible for Creation!
