More than the Birds

Here is a nice, short devotional for you. The theme: why worry? You have God. “Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to …
