Proverbs 12:25- “an anxious heart weighs a man down”
Worry is a sin.
There is a difference between worry and alarm.
There is a difference between worry and concern.
1. Worry is a sign of ingratitude. (25)
We don't acknowledge all God has done to take care of us and provide for us.
2. Worry is a sign of irresponsibility. (27)
If there is something you can do about a situation, take responsibility to do it, and then leave the rest to the Lord.
3. Worry is a sign of irreverence. (28-30)
If you spend your time worrying about things, you are saying, “This is a situation over which God has no control.”
4. Overcoming worry is a matter of faith. (31-34)
I Peter 5:7 God has promised to take care of us. It is our job to let Him.
When you worry about things that are out of your control, you are lacking the faith that God can take care
of those things.
