34所以 ,不要 为 明天 忧虑 ,因为 明天 自有明天的 忧虑 ;一天 的难处 一天当 就够了。
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
34 Verse 34. Take therefore no thought] That is, Be not therefore

anxiously careful.



The eighth and last reason, against this preposterous conduct,

is-that carking care is not only useless in itself, but renders us

miserable beforehand. The future falls under the cognizance of

God alone: we encroach, therefore, upon his rights, when we would

fain foresee all that may happen to us, and secure ourselves from

it by our cares. How much good is omitted, how many evils caused,

how many duties neglected, how many innocent persons deserted, how

many good works destroyed, how many truths suppressed, and how

many acts of injustice authorized by those timorous forecasts of

what may happen; and those faithless apprehensions concerning the

future! Let us do now what God requires of us, and trust the

consequences to him. The future time which God would have us

foresee and provide for is that of judgment and eternity: and it

is about this alone that we are careless!



Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof] αρκετοντηημεραη

κακιααυτης, Sufficient for each day is its own calamity. Each

day has its peculiar trials: we should meet them with confidence

in God. As we should live but a day at a time, so we should take

care to suffer no more evils in one day than are necessarily

attached to it. He who neglects the present for the future is

acting opposite to the order of God, his own interest, and to

every dictate of sound wisdom. Let us live for eternity, and we

shall secure all that is valuable in time.



There are many valuable reflections in the Abb� Quesnel's work,

on this chapter; and from it several of the preceding have been

derived.
