Anxiety

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”     Matthew 6:33-34

Explanation: Three times in Matthew 6, Jesus tells us to “take no thought” (Vs. 25, 31, 34). This expression means “to be anxious or worry.” The English word worry comes from the old German word wurgen and it means “to strangle or to choke.” The Greek word for worry is merizo and it means “to divide, to rip or tear apart.”

Outline: Matthew 6:25-34

  • The Foolishness of Worry
  • The Fruitlessness of Worry
  • The Faithlessness of Worry

Quote: Mark Twain said, “I am an old man and have known many troubles, but most of them never happened.”
