Don't Worry!

Matthew 6:25-34 (The Message)

25-26."If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don't fuss about what's on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.

27-29."Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.

30-33. "If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I'm trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God's giving. People who don't know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

34.."Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

Hubby preached a powerful sermon today on "Worry" a much needed message for all of us. Worrying is rampant, even among Gods people, it is so hard to not "worry". So I thought I would share with you what the "Message" had to say about it. As I was reading the scriptures, I was ashamed of making such a fuss about appearances. Now I believe God expects us to take care of our bodies, it is only when we become obsessed that we run into trouble. I do want to look and dress the best that I can, and I am sure you do to and I don't believe that it is wrong. But it sure isn't at the top of the list, is it? Our God is so wise and loving, He has made provisions. We don't need to worry about all these things. He is faithful to us! I would just like to encourage you this week to concentrate on what God has done and is doing for us! When these thoughts come to us, lets quote some scripture and believe what He tells us in His Word. Have a blessed week, sweet friends!
