Focusing on the Father brings Freedom
- People are God’s most important concern (25-26). Worry reveals that you’veforgotten how important you are to God.
- God has long term plans for you (28-30). Worry about these things reveals that you’ve forgotten that God has eternal plans for you.
- Worry is useless (27). Jesus reminds us that worrying you won’t have what you need doesn’t help you get it.
- Worry is unnecessary because God is trustworthy (31-33). Focusing on the father frees us from freaking out about having what we need.
The key to freedom is trusting in God: If you have difficulty trusting that God is faithful and that his promises are true, then you will be distracted by worries, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desire for more.
