Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing?
All Commentaries on Matthew 6:25 Go To Matthew 6
George Leo Haydock
A prudent provision is not prohibited, but that over-solicitude which draws the soul, the heart, and its affections from God, and his sweet all-ruling providence, to sink and degrade them in empty pursuits, which can never fill the soul. (Haydock)
Be not solicitous; i.e. too solicitous with a trouble and anxiety of mind, as appears by the Greek.
For your life; lit. for your soul, which many times is put for life. (Witham)
