1 Anxiety

2 Luke , Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. Luke 12, mc , vv

5 Considerations 24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? 27 "Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! Luke 12, mc , vv

6 Considerations 24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; [they have no backup, no reserve, no “golden parachute”] yet God feeds them. [since he helps them, he will help us] And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? [over emphasis on one’s health cannot add length to life] [1 timothy 4.8] 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Luke 12, mc , vv

7 Considerations 27 "Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. [they enjoy the moment, they live life] Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, [God will provide the necessities, so we can live life] O you of little faith! [have great faith that he will provide] Luke 12, mc , vv
