"do not be anxious..."

-Matthew 6: 31

Will we let the coronavirus, a pandemic, or a national emergency strip us of our faith? In unprecedented times will we like Eve, “be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ?” In the words of Jesus, “For this reason I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor for your body, as to what you should put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing?” … “Do not be anxious then, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What should we drink?’ or ‘With what should we clothe ourselves?’ “For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Like a child trusting his father to take care of him, may we trust our heavenly Father each day to take care of us. The more difficult life gets, the more simple and childlike should be our faith. Be encouraged!
