Worry is a Burden

Worry is a Burden

Read: Matthew 6:25-34 CLICK HERE…

Matthew 6:25 “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?”

Jack a 15-pound orange and white cat, took seriously his job of guarding his owners’ backyard in New Jersey. He often scared small animal intruders away, but the owners were surprised when one day they found him sitting at the base of a tall tree, looking up at a large black bear.

Jack hissed at the bear as it wandered into the yard from the nearby woods. The scared bear quickly climbed up a tree. How could a big black bear be afraid of a little kitty? What was he thinking!

Even more absurd are our thoughts of worry and fear when we consider that we have a powerful and good God who ares for us. Jesus told His disciples, “Do Not Worry…” {Matthew 6:25, 31, 34}. He said we don’t have to be fearful or worried, because our Heavenly Father knows our needs and we are valued by Him (vv. 26,32). He is perfectly willing and able to meet our needs.

When something concerns us, what’s our perspective? It’s not what we see but how we see it that reveals our attitude. If we look at life through the lens of our powerful and good God, we’ll trust Him instead of fearfully worrying. When our perspective is right, we can see God and His faithful provision. —-Anne Cetas

When fear and worry test your faith
And anxious thoughts assail,
Remember God is in control
And He will never fail. — Sper

Worry is a burden that God never meant for us to bear.
