Matthew 6:25-34 

What, Me Worry? The Washington Post listed 80 worries that trouble Americans. The top three: Education will get worse, Crime will increase, and AIDS will spread. And what, pray tell, was the least of Americans’ worries? At the bottom of the pile, with 11%, too much religion in public life today.

Observations About Worry: v. 26

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

1. Worry is learned .

2. Worry is unprofitable .

3. Worry is destructive .

 

Things We Should Never Worry About:

1. Things we can’t do anything about.

2. Things we can do something about.

 

Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

So do not worry, saying, What shall we eat?’ or What shall we drink?’ or What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them (Matthew 6:29-32).

 

God Has the Answer for Your Worries: vv. 33

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

1. Life will never be perfect .

2. Seek God first and everything else will be fine!

 

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34)
