"And why worry about clothes? Look how the wild flowers grow: they do not work or make clothes for themselves. But I tell you that not even King Solomon with all his wealth had clothes as beautiful as one of these flowers.

So do not start worrying: 'Where will my food come from? or my drink? or my clothes?'" (Matthew 6:28-32 TEV).
