  1. " Therefore do not worry, saying, ' What shall we eat? ' or ' What shall we drink? ' or ' What shall we wear? ‘ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:31-34

  2. " Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Do not worry

  3. Take no thought 1. The phrase “take no thought” is the idea behind the instruction not to worry. 2. It also gives us the idea of not dividing cares 3. Jesus is warning us against being so distracted from the main objective of life by the cares and anxiety about earthly and worldly things that we lose sight of God. Do not worry

  4. Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter… Ecclesiastes 12:13a Do not worry

  5. What “take no thought” does not mean 1. It doesn’t mean we live irresponsibly 2. Just because we are encouraged not to worry so much doesn’t mean we sit back and do nothing. For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 Do not worry

  6. Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? Matthew 6:27 Add one cubit

  7. 1. What advantage does a person who worries have over the person who does not worry? 2. Does the worrier improve their life? Add one cubit

  8. Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26 The care of God & the need not to worry

  9. So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Matthew 6:28-30 The care of God & the need not to worry

  10. God provides 1. These creatures live day to day and they are provided for. 2. These are small creatures yet are provided for daily. 3. The lilies do not spin to create thread yet they are compared to Solomon’s many beautiful possessions. The care of God & the need not to worry

  11. If God… 1. Provides for the birds and arrays the lilies 2. If God does these things what does that say concerning His care for mankind? The care of God & the need not to worry

  12. " Therefore do not worry, saying, ' What shall we eat? ' or ' What shall we drink? ' or ' What shall we wear? ' For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. Matthew 6:31-32 God is in control

  13. 3 areas not to worry 1. Daily Food 2. Daily drink 3. Clothing a. Why these three areas? b. The gentiles seek or are overly concerned with such things. God is in control

  14. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:33-34 Seek & do not worry

  15. 1. We must put God first, there is no other option for the Christian. 2. Tomorrow will have problems like today. Thus, we should not miss today while worrying about tomorrow. Seek & do not worry

  16. 1.We cannot miss today because we worry about tomorrow. 2. We cannot allow the concerns of this world to distract us from what is important. Are you guilty of this? Are you willing to shift your focus to more important matters? Remember!

  17. Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. IS NOT LIFE MORE than food and the body more than clothing? – Matthew 6:25 Is there more to life than these temporary things? Think about it
