Summary: This sermon is to enlighten us about the effects of being worried.
Tonight I want to use for a topic. Don’t worry be happy. We live in a society that dictates. We worry about our jobs, our children, our spouses and so many other things. But, the word of God tells us not to worry. Today we will examine the text to determine what the word of God tells us abut worrying.
The 1st point I want to emphasize is that you can’t serve two masters. That means if we love God we need to worship him only. Tell your neighbor, you can serve two masters. We can’t put anything or anyone above God. Let me explain it this way. Some people worship their cars. They wash it everyday. They put it in the garage. They have a fit if somebody dings it. They take up three parking spaces so no one will park next to it. They put in alarm in it. They won’t let anybody else drive it. God forbid you ask them for a ride, it’s almost as if you committed a crime. They start thinking of all kinds of excuses. You can’t eat in it, or drink in it. That car is their most prize possession. Don’t miss construe what I am saying, nothing wrong with having a nice car and keeping it clean, but I am talking about is obsession. They are devoted to that car, they can’t drive it in the rain. They spend hours on in keeping it clean. But, can’t spend two hours in church on Sunday worshipping God. That’s just not the way it should be. Verse 25 tells us not to worry about our life or what we will drink; or about what to war. That means we shouldn’t spend two hours getting dressed. Some of us worry more about our outer appearance than we should. Yes, we should dress nice and look good. But we shouldn’t let it consume us. We should be more concerned about our spiritual man. The bible says or better yet the words of Christ tells us that we can not add a day to our lives by worrying as a matter of fact worry can cause ulcers, high blood pressure and all kinds of ailments that can detract from your life. God takes care of the birds and he will take care of you also. We as humans are more valuable than the birds. The words of Christ tells us not to worry about clothes. He compares it with the lilies of the filed, they do not labor yet they are beautiful to look upon. The word of God tells us that even though Solomon was a splendid dress, that he couldn’t compare with the lilies. The bible also stresses that we need to have faith. And we all know what faith is. Or at least we should and just in case you don’t Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hope for and the evidence of things unseen. You see faith is being able to wake up in the morning drive your car to work and expect if to still be three when you get off. Faith is knowing your house will still be there at the end of the day. You have to know that God’s got your back.
It’s amazing how God works. If you remember my last sermon. I said that God’s got the power. I also foolishly invited Satan to mess with me, and you know what? He did. But, when he came, I didn’t want to fight, I wanted to run. I was ready to throw in the towel. But guess what? God had a ram in the bush. I called my friend Sheila and she wasn’t around. So I called Pastor. He reminded me of my purpose. So I stayed and did what was right. That’s how I got this sermon title. Because I was worried and all stressed out.
