The Workmanship of God

"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." -Matthew 6:33

There are perhaps no more reassuring words in the Bible which evidence God’s personal, protective, and provisioning care for each of us than those spoken by our Lord Jesus. In Matthew 6:25–34, He so clearly links us with the Father’s heart for all His creation.

Creation itself has not been surrendered to mere self-perpetuating care. God has invested something of His own self in His creation, in the same way artists or craftsmen pour their skills—and thereby their fullest interest—into their work.
