“If then you are not able
To do as small a thing
Why do you worry
About the rest?”
εἰ οὖν οὐδὲ ἐλάχιστον δύνασθε, τί περὶ τῶν λοιπῶν μεριμνᾶτε;
This appears to be a unique verse in this longer saying that Luke shared with Matthew about worrying. Jesus said that if you are not able to do as small a thing as that (εἰ οὖν οὐδὲ ἐλάχιστον δύνασθε), why do you worry about the rest of the things (τί περὶ τῶν λοιπῶν μεριμνᾶτε)? Jesus seemed to indicate that if you cannot add to your lifespan by worrying, why worry about anything else. What, me worry? What do you worry about?
