Today’s Text: Luke 12:22-34
Jesus tells us not to worry about material things. This is very similar to His teaching recorded in Matthew 6.
Some of the reasons He gives are : (1) There are more important things in life than food and clothing, (2) worrying itself does no good, (3) an obsession with material things is a misplaced priority, (4) it also shows a lack of faith in our heavenly father who promises us if we seek Him first He will take care of our needs.
Do you see any other reasons?
Jesus concludes with “do not fear little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”.
How does this assurance (that the Father desires to give us the Kingdom) relate to our tendency to worry about material things?
