This is why I am a “Not-So-Concerned Nazarene”, mainly because I follow Jesus, the truly Not-So Concerned Nazarene. I’ll let him speak for himself.
Matthew 6: 25-34
Do Not Worry
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life ?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Nick Flora is an independent performing songwriter from Nashville, TN. Nick has been writing, recording, and touring with his music since he was a teenager with a passion for creating interesting, engaging, and enjoyable songs. His latest album, The Re-Introduction of Nick Flora, broke the top 40 on iTunes on the day of it’s release. The Re-Introduction of Nick Flora has been on this musicians playlist for a couple of months now and it quickly became one of my favorites with songs both heavy and light-hearted, listening to the album from start to finish is a rewarding process, well-worth the time. It’s my pleasure to welcome Nick Flora back to Voices In My Head.
