Biblical Fashion Advice (part 7 of 7) Don’t worry about It

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply Wisdom.com“Also, on the matter of clothing, why are YOU anxious? Take a lesson from the lilies of the field, how they are growing; they do not toil, nor do they spin; but I say to YOU that not even Solʹo·mon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these. If, now, God thus clothes the vegetation of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much rather clothe YOU, YOU with little faith? So never be anxious and say, ‘What are we to eat?’ or, ‘What are we to drink?’ or, ‘What are we to put on?’ For all these are the things the nations are eagerly pursuing. For YOUR heavenly Father knows YOU need all these things” (Matthew 6:28-32).

The above wisdom comes from Jesus during his famous Sermon on the mount. The three biggest takeaways here are (1) don’t worry about it (2) God will provide (3) perhaps what you are already wearing is exponentially more beautiful than any designer outfit.

(1) Don’t worry about it: If you worry about fashion then you are rich and chances are that you have more clothing and shoes and jackets than 90% of the rest of the world. Poor people worry about not freezing tonight or having one complete pair of shoes. Clothes and fashion styles come and go. But wearing the new personality and dressing yourself with love will never go out of style.  So don’t worry about it.

(2) God will provide: Even Jesus, who had no earthly riches, wore a seamless tunic, one which the Roman guards fought over and one which must have taken someone 6 months of loving care to stitch for him.  If you have more than one pair of shoes and two hoodies then God already has provided for you. You are warmer and more stylish than 7 billion other people alive today. That is a blessing.

(3) Perhaps what you are already wearing is exponentially more beautiful than any high-end designer outfit. Nothing is more beautiful than seeing someone who loves God and has a pure heart.
