Overcoming Financial Fear, Day 4

Money Management

Today’s reading is drawn from Matthew 6:25-34.

These words of Jesus teach us how to live in uncertain financial times without stress or fear.

Financial fear is: 1) unreasonable (verse 25). We are not to become distracted from the substantial issues of life over less important matters like what we will eat or wear.

It is 2) unnatural (verse 26). We are the only creation of God who worries. God provides for the birds He created, and we are more valuable than they are. We are outside of God’s natural design when we worry.

It is 3) unhelpful (verse 27). Worry and fear do not produce anything worthwhile.

It is 4) unnecessary (verse 30). God provides for His own and promises to take care of our needs.

It is 5) unbelieving (verses 31, 32). We are acting as if God did not exist when we live in financial fear. Our heavenly Father knows our needs, and He will provide.
