The Impossible Commandment

Sunday, February 12 at 11 am | Bulletin

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry…”  Matthew 6:24

I call it the impossible commandment: ‘Do not worry.’  Worrying is what we do!

The thrust of Jesus’ advice to us is this: trust God and live in the blessing of this moment.

The trouble with worry is that, while it’s good to think ahead and plan for the future, that planning can happen with a deep awareness of what God is doing in your life right now.

As Jesus tells us, today has plenty of trouble. No need to borrow any from the days to come.

So have an un-anxious day!

P.S. In light of the recent earthquake affecting people in Turkey and Syria, we’re taking a special offering this Sunday through the United Methodist Committee on Relief, who is working in partnership with the International Red Crescent.
