Worrying is something we all do, but we need to learn how to fight worry and trust in God!
In today’s lesson, we’re talking about something Jesus tells us NOT to do. Jesus says we shouldn’t worry. Worry means we’re afraid that we won’t be taken care of in life. Worry isn’t helpful for a few reasons. First, worry doesn’t have the power to change anything. It just makes us feel yucky. Second, worry tricks us into thinking that we know what’s best for us and that we can control our lives. Third, worry takes our eyes off of Jesus and puts the focus on ourselves. Do you see why Jesus doesn’t want us to worry? He doesn’t want us to be afraid. He wants us to trust in him and to be confident that he’ll give us everything we need. You know why? Because Jesus loves us and he is in control. So, the next time you’re faced with a situation that makes you scared or unsure, remember what Jesus said about worry-don’t do it! Instead, pray and ask God to give you what you need to get through it. And, don’t be fooled into thinking that you know what’s best for you. Trust that God knows what’s best for your life because he made you!
