8 reasons NOT to be Anxious

Eight reasons not to be anxious. Originally posted by John Piper in his reading plan on Matthew 6:25-34.

  1. Life is more than food and the body more than clothing (Matthew 6:25). 
  2. God feeds the birds and you are more valuable than they are (Matthew 6:26). 
  3. It's pointless. It adds not one hour to your life (Matthew 6:27). 
  4. If God clothes ephemeral grass, he will clothe eternal you (Matthew 6:28-30). 
  5. Unbelievers are anxious about stuff. And you are not an unbeliever (Matthew 6:32a). 
  6. Your father knows that you need all these things you're anxious about (Matthew 6:32b). 
  7. When you seek first God's kingdom and righteousness, what you need is added to you (Matthew 6:33). 
  8. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Tomorrow's trouble stays there (Matthew 6:34).
"We should be slow to treat Jesus as if he doesn’t know what he is doing in our lives"
