Not to worry

Re:Verse reading–Matthew 6:19-34 (day six)  “Therefore I tell you not to worry about your life” (vs 25)  Do you worry?  Before you answer the question, consider the definition.  The word means “to be pulled in different directions, to be distracted”.  So. . .”Are you pulled in several directions?”  “Are you able to give God your undivided attention/love/energy/obedience or are you hindered from such a commitment by the fear of the cost?”  Jesus was very sensitive to this inner battle that goes on within the people of God.  It is one of the great hurdles of human existence.  We either consolidate our love and energy on God alone or we try to serve Him with only part of our heart.  Jesus encourages choice number one.  He knows it will be the most difficult, liberating choice that we will ever make.  He considers it a natural and necessary expression of true faith.  So dear friend,  do you worry?
