The River Walk gave me a much needed reminder and lesson in love today. One of my biggest pitfalls as a Christian, is worrying. I am constantly struggling to plan ahead and prepare for various outcomes that may or may not ever actually happen.
Do you do that? Do you worry sometimes, perhaps a little more than you should?
Reading this blog reminded me of another Biblical passage. It is one often quoted, but I have to wonder…just how much do we truly practice it? On a more personal note…how much do I truly practice it?
Matthew 6:25-34 NIV
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? 28“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
So I encourage and implore you as your read The River Walk’s “Put The List Down” to reflect on your walk. Are you giving it all to God?
But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about.
