Thoughts for our financial situation

Matthew 6:25-34

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

Does anyone else think this relates to our current situation?

Hey Kev, it's interesting for me that you post this as it's what I have been thinking in part the last couple of days. To answer your question, yes I do think this relates directly to our current situation. I have found myself becoming very anxious over the last couple of weeks(naturally so), but I am always drawn back to this principle, "He is in control, I'm not, He knows where I'm at and He knows what I need".

Yes, it is important to be reminded that He is in control. We so often worry about things that we have no control over. The world gets all worried, but as God's kingdom people we are not to be like the world.

P.S. I know that you have been lurking around in the shadows here for a while. Thanks for jumping in to comment. I appreciate your feedback.
