What are you worried about?

Matthew 6:25-32

25 Therefore I tell you: Don't worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear.  Isn't life more than food and the body more than clothing?

26 Consider the birds of the sky: They don't sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Aren't you worth more than they?

27 Can any of you add one moment to his life span by worrying?

28 And why do you worry about clothes? Observe how the wildflowers of the field grow: They don't labor or spin thread.

29. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these.

30 If that's how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and thown into the furnace tomorrow, won't he do much more for you--you of little faith?

31 So don't worry, saying, "What will we eat?" or "What will we drink?" or "What will we wear?".

32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

Jesus commands us not to worry about things that we need.  If we are not to worry about the things we need should we worry about the things we want?  Jesus is instructing us not to worry about anything.  We laugh about this sin, but it is a sin to worry.  When we are more concerned about things, we forget that life is more than the things we possess.  When we forget this principle, we become possessed by things.  Do you possess things or do things possess you?  Spend some time in prayer about things you worry about and ask God to help you focus on what matters.
