Part of the devotional on Matthew 6:28-32:
Some worry quite a bit about how their lawns and yards look. “The neighbors have mowed their yard, I had better do ours.” “It’s Saturday—time to dust the living room.” “Cleanliness is next to godliness.” It is fine to have a hobby, but some get obsessed with how their things look. To Jesus, such preoccupations were trivial at best, idolatrous at worst. God put flowers in the field just fine with no one worrying about them, and those were destined for burning. Similarly, any “adorning” of our houses, yards, or ourselves will quickly pass away. The best things to invest in are the things that will last forever. How silly to put the emphasis on something that will disappear in a couple of days.
