“If you would take a moment. Think about what you believe about God. Do you know Him, and do you know what He provides for you? Think beyond food and clothing and material things. Consider how He has taken care of the most important things. He has secured our salvation, and eternal life and joy and satisfaction. He has given us Himself! The very Person we were created for! If we have God Himself, along with His eternal blessings, then we don’t need to worry about the things in this life that will pass.”

Icebreaker Question: Are there things in your life that remind you of God’s love and goodness?
Passage: Matthew 6:25-27
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
Key Idea: We don’t need to be anxious because God cares for us. He is always good and provides our greatest need.
