    LUKE 12:15 and HE said unto them take heed and beware of covetousness for a mans life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth JOHN 14:6 JESUS saith unto him I am the way the truth AND THE LIFE no man cometh unto THE FATHER but by ME JOHN 6:63 it is the spirit that quickeneth the flesh profiteth nothing THE WORDS that I SPEAK unto you they are spirit and THEY ARE LIFE

    5 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? This has nothing to do with your 'height'. This means by thinking you can not add one second to the years of your life.

    Jehovah God cares for the birds by giving them what is needed to feed them and make sure they are clothed. If God cares for the birds, we can have confidence that he will care for our needs.
  • BSP
    Verse 4~ The worst thing another human can do to us is to put us to death. Our everlasting life lies in the hands of Jehovah God and it is to him that we should be faithful and loyal to in everything.
