Don’t Worry About Worrying

Have you ever watched the TV show “Life without People”? It’s w show that speculates what the world would be like if all of the people on earth just vanished leaving only the wild animals to rule. Do you think that there would be a problem with extinction? Sometimes I disagree with interfering with nature to “preserve” a species. The instincts that animals have allow the species to Move, Adapt, or die. They do not mope around the woods wondering if food is going to be available. They search for it. They do not worry where is their next bed is going to be. They simply bed where they are.
Jesus says that we too are not to worry about where our next meal or shelter is coming from. Or even wiry about the clothes we wear. In this passage Jesus lets us in on a little known sin that everyone commits to varying extents. It is a sin to worry. Why? Because people who do not know Christ as Savior do these things. If we worry and seek after things then our faith is in question. But Jesus tells us how to rectify this; “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,, and all these things will be provided for you. Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow,because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Its like this… we have the richest most loving Father in the entire universe who knows us better than we know our self and we can know that He will give us everything that we need for His purpose. Just as he provides for the animals and plants how much more He gives us. How cool is that. Ever played “My dad is richer than hour dad?” I think ours tops everyone dad.
As you go thought pray think about how much we really depend on God. Food, money, job, house, and try to list them on a 3×5 card. Carry it around with you for a while and add to it as God reveals to you the things He provides.
