“Don’t be anxious about your life? and “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.? We can have strong relationships with our things which can distort our priorities and values. You may have heard it said that we should “use things and love people.? However, in our culture we often “use people and love things.? This is not what God intends for us and Jesus gives us some clear direction in our reading.
To Know: Our things can get in the way of our trust of God.
To Feel: Calm confidence that God will provide all we need.
To Do: Trust God, balanced laboring and resting, and seeking first the kingdom.
