Yesterday I spent hours learning about long term care insurance, weighing the options, whether I can afford it or not, wondering what happens if I don’t get it. Mentally exhausted, I discussed it with a friend and she made me realize I spend a lot more time worrying about protecting myself financially in the future than I do ensuring my future is secure by spending time with God. Why worry when my future is in God’s hand?
“So don’t worry. Don’t say, ‘What will we eat?’ Or, ‘What will we drink?’ Or, ‘What will we wear?’ People who are ungodly run after all of those things. Your Father who is in heaven knows that you need them. But put God’s kingdom first. Do what he wants you to do. Then all of those things will also be given to you. So don’t worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6 31-34 (NIRV)
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
