Summary: We need to worship instead of worrying

Matt 6:25-34

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Acts 1:8

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Got an email and since a lot of you are working out or trying to lose weight, thought I would share. You might have heard.

Yesterday I was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow at Wal-Mart, for

my dog. I was about to check out when a woman behind me asked if I

had a dog.

What did she think, that I had an elephant? Since I had little else to

do, on impulse and because I was feeling cantankerous, I told her that

no, I didn't have a dog, and that I was starting the Purina Diet

again, although I probably shouldn't because I ended up in the

hospital last time.

On the bright side though, I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an

intensive care ward with tubes coming out of every hole in my body and

IV's in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way

that it works is to load your pockets with Purina nuggets and simply

eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food is

nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.

(I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was

enthralled with my story by now.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up

in intensive care because the dog food had poisoned me. I told her

no; I had stopped in the middle of the parking lot to chase my tail

and a car hit me.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was

laughing so hard!

WAL-MART won't let me shop there anymore

One summer night during a severe thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small son into bed. She was about to turn the light off when he asked in a trembling voice, "Mommy, will you stay with me all night?" Smiling, the mother gave him a warm, reassuring hug and said tenderly, "I can’t dear. I have to sleep in Daddy’s room." A long silence followed. At last it was broken by a shaky voice saying, "The big sissy!"
