Epiphany 8A (Matt. 6.34)

…Don’t play the world’s game, Jesus says. I have come to let you live by a different set of rules. Be salt. Be light. Be perfectly satisfied that God, in His infinite care for you, will bring about what’s best. Don’t be afraid. Don’t worry about your life, says Jesus.

So let our worries and anxieties be an indicator of how reliant we are on God or how separated our lives are from God. When the “worryometer” indicator goes up, pray more. When anxiety rises, trust more. How do we trust more? Pray. Hope more. Help more. Be more in the Kingdom of God. Let’s live more like what we believe is true.
