A Lesson about the small things (Matthew 6, Isaiah 58)

“But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith,” Matt. 6:30

Sometimes the smallest of things and the smallest of people can be used of God to illustrate great truth.  For example, In Matthew 6 Jesus is teaching His disciples about authentic Christian living.  In Vs: 25-34 we discover authentic Christian living includes being able to serve the Lord in an unhindered way.

Here is the deal, “If you are living in worry, you are hindered from Kingdom living.”

Think it through:

1.  There are those who can never focus on what God is calling them to do because they are always focused on their own needs and desires, Vs: 25

2.  There are those who can never walk in faith because they are always in the rocking chair of worry.  Always, there is something to do, but never getting anywhere, Vs: 26-28

3.  There are those who can never walk in faith because they are trapped in the passions of the world, Vs:30-32

4.  But there are many who learn to trust in the God who cares about the small things!

The fact is, the birds of the air, the lilies of the field, and the grass all find a gracious God who cares for them.  How much more does God care for you!!!

Our response:

This very day we should have great peace in knowing how much He loves us.  This very day we should reach out in faith to do the very things worry has kept us from for years.  May we learn to trust in God with all of our heart!!!  Yes, you can do God’s work with the assurance that all our needs will be met.
