But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more surely clothe you, O you of little trust? Bible

“grass.” This is not “grass” as we think of in the United States today, green grass that we care for and cut with a lawn mower. In the biblical world most field plants did not have names, usually only the edible plants had names. The rest of the field-weeds were simply called “grass.” Green lawn-grass does not burn well, even when dry, but a stack of field weeds burned fast and hot, and was commonly used to start campfires or heat the oven.
