When God seems far away, Psalm 139


When you worry, Matthew 6:19-34


God Is More Important than Money

19"Donít store treasures for yourselves here on earth where moths and rust will destroy them and thieves can break in and steal them. 20But store your treasures in heaven where they cannot be destroyed by moths or rust and where thieves cannot break in and steal them. 21Your heart will be where your treasure is.

22"The eye is a light for the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. 23But if your eyes are evil, your whole body will be full of darkness. And if the only light you have is really darkness, then you have the worst darkness.

24"No one can serve two masters. The person will hate one master and love the other, or will follow one master and refuse to follow the other. You cannot serve both God and worldly riches.

Donít Worry

25"So I tell you, donít worry about the food or drink you need to live, or about the clothes you need for your body. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothes. 26Look at the birds in the air. They donít plant or harvest or store food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. And you know that you are worth much more than the birds. 27You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it.

28"And why do you worry about clothes? Look at how the lilies in the field grow. They donít work or make clothes for themselves. 29But I tell you that even Solomon with his riches was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers. 30God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today but tomorrow is thrown into the fire. So you can be even more sure that God will clothe you. Donít have so little faith! 31Donít worry and say, ĎWhat will we eat?í or ĎWhat will we drink?í or ĎWhat will we wear?í 32The people who donít know God keep trying to get these things, and your Father in heaven knows you need them. 33The thing you should want most is Godís kingdom and doing what God wants. Then all these other things you need will be given to you. 34So donít worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
