Of all the things Jesus could have addressed in the Sermon on the Mount, it’s fascinating that He spends a good bit of time in Matthew 6 addressing worry. In fact, He COMMANDS us not to be worried: “Do not be worried about your life.” (Matthew 6:25)
We are champion worriers. God knows that worry is so counterproductive. Not only is it useless, but it debilitates life, decimates our faith, destroys our witness before a need watching world, and dishonors God. So, to help us, God gives us multiple reasons why worry is so useless.
Are you worried about anything today? If you’re a true child of God, worry is a SIN—simply a lack of faith in your faithful Father (the One who owns heaven and earth). Identify its source and place your worries in the hands of the only One who can do anything about it…and leave it there.
