But the LORD asked, "You cared about a vine plant that you neither worked on nor cultivated? A vine plant that grew up overnight and died overnight?
And why do you worry about clothes? Consider the lilies in the field and how they grow. They don't work or spin yarn,
Consider how the lilies grow. They don't work or spin yarn, but I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them.
I have sent you to harvest what you have not worked for. Others have worked, and you have adopted their work as your own."
Don't exhaust yourself acquiring wealth; be smart enough to stop.
Therefore, God's choice does not depend on a person's will or effort, but on God himself, who shows mercy.
