"He careth for you"

If one thing more than another stands out in the teaching of Christ Jesus and the apostles, it is the fact of God's love and care for His children. This is well illustrated by the words of the Master recorded in the sixth chapter of Matthew's Gospel (verses 25, 33): "I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? . . . But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." It is thus a question of obedience to God's law, a question of righteous living; for this will ensure all the needed things.

In his first epistle (5:6,7) Peter speaks in a similar way. He writes, "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." Living in the knowledge of the omnipotence of God, Christians are to be humble, knowing that exaltation will follow. How splendid was the faith which Peter urged upon them; how strong his confidence in the love of God! Paul showed the same dauntless trust in God when he wrote to the Philippians (4:19), "My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
