They do not sow or reap or gather…

This reading from Matthew 6:29-34 about the need not to worry is at once poetic and impossible to abide by.

Look at the birds in the sky. They do not sow or reap or gather.

The truth is we will never stop worrying.

But if by some great effort we will stop for a moment and focus on an ultimate reality, things will always turn out right in the end anyway.
