4 REASONS WHY WE WORRY
1. Do not over estimate the importance of "stuff"
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
* Philippians 4:19'-
19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
2. We doubt our value before God
26 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?

23 But whoever has doubts is condemned if they eat, because their eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.
