We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May this verse of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

 

Scripture:  Luke 12:22-34 (NIV)

Do Not Worry

22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life[a]26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! 29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

How To Stop Worrying About Money?

June 25, 2017

 

Warm Up:

When do you find yourself worrying most about money? Are you worried these days?

 

Diving In:

  • How does the “pull of the culture” or what we see and hear in the media encourage us to always want more and never be satisfied with what we have? How does that lead to worrying? And how does Psalm 23:1 “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want” offer a different response to that?
  • Read through Jesus’ words in Luke 12:22-31 and consider what his key messages are? You might want to also take some time to read about the conversation around greed that Jesus had just before this passage in Luke 12 and consider how that conversation impacts his response in verses 12-31.
  • Where do you see the difference between needs and wants in your life?
  • We are suggesting that to “seek first his Kingdom” might mean for us to be involved in doing something when it comes to our finances or financial worries. What do you think about the statement “worry paralyzes, God empowers”?
  • What are some things you might be able to do as God leads you when it comes to money in your life and how might that help you stop worrying? (or at least worry less J)

 

Take Home:

  • If you don’t have a budget, consider creating one. You can sign up on today’s Connection Card for our managing money course and to get help with your budget/debt.

 

Say a prayer for someone who is experiencing the stress of financial challenges right now.
