You're Too Valuable to Worry

Matthew 6:25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?  26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 

Jesus said not to worry. Worry comes from imaginations about circumstances. Your imagination or “mind’s eye” is very powerful. According to the text, the worry issues were: “Do I have enough?” and “Am I worth it?”

The real key issue is, “What is life about?” Notice that Jesus said that your life is more than food and clothing. You have great value because people are made in God’s image and likeness. You are God’s masterpiece! (Ephesians 2:10).

Worry undermines your sense of value by making it seem like you are living on the edge of lack and have to operate in “survival mode.”

Here’s the truth of the matter: You are too valuable to think or feel like that! Jesus said that God takes care of birds. He then asked the key question, “Aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?”

Now say this: “Yes, I am valuable! I am too valuable to God to worry! He takes care of me so I can focus on solutions, not problems.”  Amen!
