"And he said to his disciples, 'Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.'..."

In today’s world many of us Christians struggle with worry; even though, we believe that God is sovereign and in absolute control of everything. This situation is nothing new, for Jesus was aware also of this exhausting and tiresome burden during His time here on earth. God wants us to know how we can begin to rest from the tyranny of worry so that we can also begin to rest on Him more.

Application Questions

1. The world is constantly determining how valuable you are by what you consume, by where you live, by your career choice, by your ethnicity, by your looks, by the size of your bank account and even by the coffee you drink. In light of this reality, who or what is determining your real value? Do you understand how valuable you are to God?

2. Self reliance has been instilled in us as a good virtue in life since we were children, but how much of that is now impeding in your trusting God more? Do you know your limitations or do you continue to assume the place of God in your life?

3. We have been commanded to seek the Kingdom of God first as the great goal of life. How is the kingdom of God the great goal of your life? What practical steps can you take to begin to move in that direction?
