John, Pat, and Chris share from Matthew 6:25-34. We are instructed in God’s word not to worry about our life. They continue to discuss how nothing changes for the good by worrying. In fact worry is a persistent mental uneasiness, agitation, anxiousness. Worry often leads to lack of sleep, peace and appetite. Jesus said 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? We have extreme value to God. He cares for us deeply and encourages us instead of spending useless time worrying about a situation; seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. We are encouraged in God’s word to seek him and just like Mary, Martha’s sister who sat at the feet of Jesus so should we sit at his feet. Jesus said this is the “one thing” we should be concerned about. In his presence and in his word God will direct us on what we need to do and where we should go.
