You have nothing to worry about.


Matt. 6:25  “So I tell you, don’t worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food, drink, or clothes.  Doesn’t life consist of more than food and clothing?”

It seems to be what we do best.  We spend our lives consumed with trying to get enough food, drink, shelter, or clothing.  Everything we do revolves around it.  And for most of us, having enough is not enough.  We always strive to have more than enough so that what we have will be enough in case something unexpected comes our way.

Jesus is saying here to not work for the necessities of life; He is saying don’t worry about whether or not what you have is enough.  He is saying that life is so much more than what we have.  He is saying that if we understand what life is really all about, we will be content with what we have and what we have will be enough.

Life doesn’t consist of our food, clothing, drink, shelter, or anything else we might obtain in this world.  Life consists of how we relate to God.  Life is having a relationship with God.  If we don’t have a relationship with God, we are dead.  In other words, real life is spiritual and not material.  We can have all the riches of earth and not be spiritually alive. 

If you are blessed with much, use what you have to bring God honor and glory with thanksgiving from your heart.  If you don’t have much, be content with what you have with thanksgiving and use what you have for God’s honor and glory.  Trust God and He will supply all your needs.
