MATTHEW 6:25_nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on…
How long do you stand in front of the closet deciding what to wear? Whether you set it out the night before, the morning of, or an hour before some special event, does it involve a major decision? If so, is that because you have too many clothes? Maybe it’s because you have too few, and are embarrassed about wearing the same thing … again.
This is not about making a fashion statement, or lack of one. This is about worry.
You may worry about money to buy clothes.
You may worry about fashion police.
You worry because you do not have the latest name brands.
When you worry this way, you have degraded your self-worth. You have placed your value to equal a brand label on a piece of clothing. Even if it is a very expensive piece – you are worth far more. You are a living being created in God’s image.
To worry is to place the world above God. This may be very cliché but—worrying will never change anything.
Holy Creator, Thank You that my worth is far more than man made stuff. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ gives me great worth—I will not degrade myself!
