I Kings 17:8-16 | Galatians 5:25-6:10 | Matthew 6:24-3
“You cannot serve God and money” (Gospel for the week, Matt. 6:24–34), for they require two contrary forms of service. Worry is a form of false worship, as we fail to “fear, love, and trust in God above all things.” He who feeds the birds and clothes the flowers will certainly provide for our daily needs. With such confidence we are liberated from worry and freed to do good with our material resources, especially to those who are of the household of faith (Epistle for the week, Gal. 5:25–6:10).
