The future is uncertain and sometimes scary. This one truth can help you to live free of worry. The early Christian church was a “resurrection religion”—it was motivated less by a set of rules than by the event of Jesus’ death and resurrection. During his earthly ministry Jesus initiated a New Covenant based on love instead of rules. But that doesn’t mean he threw out the rules. In fact, he passed along an odd assortment of new commandments that sounded unreasonable . . . until he initiated and punctuated this New Covenant by dying on a cross and then rising from dead. 

When you face a worrying situation, do you tend to take action or to be more passive? What are some advantages and disadvantages to the way you respond to worry?

When you’re tempted to borrow from tomorrow, look for a way to participate in what God is doing today. Begin your day declaring your trust in God. This is a way to seek first God’s kingdom. Before worry starts whispering in your ear, start trusting your heavenly Father who loves you. It is the greatest habit you can develop. Do not worry. What has worrying ever done for you?

What is something that worries you right now? What can you do this week to declare your trust in God, relabel your worry as “tomorrow,” and participate in what God is doing today?

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” Matthew 6:26–27
