8 Reasons Not To Be Anxious

Read More

In Matthew 6:25-34, Jesus tells us not to be anxious three separate times. It must have been something the people needed to hear. 

It is clearly something we need to hear today in our own lives. So why don't we listen to him? Why is it so easy to let our minds wander to the “what if’s” and the worst case scenarios? 

The heart of the matter is a problem of perspective. All too often we focus either on the shortsighted, physical aspects of our lives, forgetting that we fight a greater battle for the kingdom, or we worry ourselves about matters that are really no concern of ours. 

Jesus speaks to both of these points, and gives us advice for today on how to turn our anxiety into a God-honoring reverence for the limited time we have, and the importance of the mission at hand.
