This is the continuation of an earlier post about a Bible study in which I’m facilitating and participating.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well.
~ Matthew 6:33
The Comparison Trap: Week Three, Day Seven… Some of my reminders and my takeaways from the daily devotional include:
My takeaway is short and sweet today: When we worry, it’s often because we don’t trust God enough.
Someone once shared that concept with me, and it’s just stuck. If we’re seeking His Kingdom and His righteousness (the condition or state we’re in that is approved of and acceptable to God), then we will be in a place where worry won’t be necessary. If we’re seeking His Kingdom and His righteousness, we’ll know and trust that He’s got control over what I can’t control.
Sandra says “worry is a crutch for things we can’t control.”
Have you ever tried to walk with one crutch? It’s awkward. You feel lopsided.
When we worry, we aren’t trusting God to take care of the circumstances. Worry is lopsided. Worry is a crutch, and it makes life unbalanced and uneven.
