Matthew 6:19-34

Some people seem to be predisposed to be anxious and worry. Our daily news reports do not help. We hear about fake news, scary clowns, North Korea, mass shootings, a health care crisis, social ills, and a disregard for life. If you find that there are things going on in your life that are outside of your control Jesus says “do not worry about your life” (Matt. 6:22).

E. Stanley Jones wrote: “I am inwardly fashioned for faith, not for fear. Fear is not my native land; faith is. I am so made that worry and anxiety are sand in the machinery of life; faith is the oil. I live better by faith and confidence than by fear, doubt and anxiety.” (Transformed by Thorns). God has made us to be a people seeking His Kingdom and trusting His will to be done. Prayerfully presenting situations to God eases worry and fear. Today, as you seek God and His blessing upon difficult situations, family trials, and challenges beyond your control place the treasure of your faith in the hands of One who treasures you.
