“Don’t worry about a thing, cuz every little thing is gonna be alright!”
Jesus didn’t sing that line but he could have! We sing about worry as if preaching to ourselves. We know we all worry but no one wants the stress of worry. And most of our worries swirl around our treasure: how we spend our time, energy, and money - especially our money.
Sunday we listened in on Luke 12:22-34. We picked up four things from Jesus about weakening worry and growing generosity:
Life is more than stuff (v.22-23)
Consider God’s Generosity (v.24-28, 32)
Align with God’s Priorities (v.29-31)
Redirect your treasure (v.32-34)
Jesus looks at money and worry a bit differently than we do. Remember, Jesus says that heart follows treasure, not the other way around. Our emotions and thoughts are anchored to the places we invest our time, energy, and money. Naturally, that’s where our worry hangs out. Jesus is suggesting something radical: if treasure leads the way for heart and then worry, then weaken worry by moving your treasure! You can explore this further by listening to Sunday’s message.
