Wesley's Notes for Matthew 6:34


6:34 The morrow shall take thought for itself - That is, he careful for the morrow when it comes. The evil thereof - Speaking after the manner of men. But all trouble is, upon the whole, a real good. It is good physic which God dispenses daily to his children, according to the need and the strength of each.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 6:34


Mt 6:34 Take, therefore, no thought for the morrow. Again, it should read, as in the Revised Version, "Have no anxiety about tomorrow". The morrow shallll take thought for the things of itself. Not "take care of itself", but bring its own cares, anxieties and troubles. We should not foolishly increase our present burden by borrowing trouble about tomorrow.
