"Wherefore, 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?"
Clothes are expensive, and poor believers may be led into anxiety as to where their next
suit will come from. The soles are thin; how shall we get new shoes? See how our
thoughtful Lord has provided against this care. Our heavenly Father clothes the grass of
the field with a splendor such as Solomon could not equal: will He not clothe His own
children? We are sure He will. There may be many a patch and a darn, but raiment we shall
A poor minister found his clothes nearly threadbare, and so far gone that they would
hardly hold together; but as a servant of the Lord he expected his Master to find him his
livery. It so happened that the writer on a visit to a friend had the loan of the good
man's pulpit, and it came into his mind to make a collection for him, and there was his
suit. Many other cases we have seen in which those who had served the Lord have found Him
considerate of their wardrobe. He who made man so that when he had sinned he needed
garments, also in mercy supplied him with them; and those which the Lord gave to our first
parents were far better than those they made for themselves.
