We’re needed

11 May
Despite the funny videos with smiling families, many are worried about unemployment and running out of food. But long ago, Jesus promised that we’d be alright if we trust him and continue to shine his light.
Practicing our faith is crucial right now. Don’t trust feelings! That’s where many are operating from nowadays. When you’re feeling down, tell yourself it will be ok. Call a friend to pray, find promises that remind you that everything will work out fine.
Here is a bible passage that will help you. Matthew 5 comes right after a chapter speaking of terrible trouble, yet Jesus reminds his people to not worry. So let’s trust him.
Matthew 6:25-34 New International Version (NIV) Bible Gateway
Do Not Worry
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? 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? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
What should be our concern right now? Sharing the Gospel. Finding opportunities to tell other’s about the love Jesus showed at the cross. Be courageous, be blameless, be love.
