Scripture for Sunday August 21

Matthew 6:25-34

Generally speaking, we worry over things we don’t have control over. Worrying gives us the illusion we are doing something about it. Sometimes people actually think that by worrying, they are preventing bad things from happening. Logically it doesn’t make sense, but emotionally it can be a powerful controlling factor.

Jesus gives two reasons not to worry. God takes good care of even the birds and the flowers, so He’ll certainly take care of us. And worrying doesn’t accomplish anything positive anyway.
