WORRY IS A NON-PROFIT WORK
TEXT: MATTHEW 6:25-33
MEMORY VERSE: “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” (MATTHEW 6:26)
Yesterday is gone and can never be recovered. Today is fresh with abundance of opportunities. Worrying about tomorrow is a waste of time and energy. The root of worry lies in the tendency of refusing to let go of the past and an attempt to borrow problems from the future.
Hear what John Lubbock says, “A day of worry is more exhausting than a day of work”. Isn’t that true? There is no technology or science that can give you extra hours from yesterday or tomorrow. Therefore, make good use of today to achieve your desire.
In our text, our Lord Jesus Christ teaches us not to get worried about our needs. Instead of worrying, think, pray, decide and act. You are the image of God and prepared to inherit the blessings of Christ’s sufferings, death and resurrection. If God feeds ‘the fowls of the air’ which have no food store, He will provide for you. Praise Him for your past blessings, then pray in faith as you work or study. Success is sure. He knows what is good for you always.
QUOTE: Make good use of today.
CHALLENGE: You have today, forget yesterday; give tomorrow to Jesus.
PRAYER: Lord, give me grace to handle each day without fear.
