Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 6:34

_ _ Take therefore no thought — anxious care.

_ _ for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself — (or, according to other authorities, “for itself”) — shall have its own causes of anxiety.

_ _ Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof — An admirable practical maxim, and better rendered in our version than in almost any other, not excepting the preceding English ones. Every day brings its own cares; and to anticipate is only to double them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 6:25-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 6:34

The morrow shall take thought for itself — That is, he careful for the morrow when it comes. The evil thereof — Speaking after the manner of men. But all trouble is, upon the whole, a real good. It is good physic which God dispenses daily to his children, according to the need and the strength of each.
