Yesterday’s reading talked about not serving two masters; today’s verses follow the logic of what it is like to put this world first. It results in ANXIETY! If we are caught up in this world we focus on what we are going to wear, what we are going to eat, what car we will drive, where we will live, and the list goes on! If our heart and mind is focused on material things, we end up in knots. The answer? Surrender to Jesus – Seek GOD first… make this your choice, then everything else will just fall into place!
Creator God, you have created my heart with a capacity to experience joy and peace and love. Yet my choices cause me to know fear, judgment and anxiety. Right now, show me the places where I can let go of my worry by changing how I think. Open my eyes to see things from your point of view. Amen”
