Defeating the Giant of Worry

April 25, 2021

4 Truths About Worry:

1.Worry is Worthless.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?  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?” Matthew 6: 25-26 

2.Worry is a Waste of Time.

“Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” Matthew 6: 27

3.Worry is an Unnecessary Weight.

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.”  Matthew 6: 28-32

Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.” Proverbs 12:25

4.Worry is Sin.

Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:6

What we worry about the most reveals where we trust God the least!
