"A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety" Aesop
Nevertheless, we worry and fret and agonize. In fact, human beings are the only one of God's creation that are anxious and become overly concerned. As we conclude in our sermon series, "Upside Down," Jesus illustrates why worrying is Unreasonable, Unnatural, Unhealthy, and Unnecessary. He teaches us to, 'Never worry about anything by seeking the Kingdom of God" One way to conquer a passion is by focusing on a greater passion. Focusing on earthly matters like riches and basic needs will always breed worry and anxiety but focusing on eternal matters delivers us from those worries and bring God's peace. So, would you join me this morning as Jesus command us, "Do not worry about anything!"
