The Lord will provide

With the economic conditions as they are, a lot of us are worried about the future. We watch the stock market, 401k values, and to see if we are going to receive a pink slip this month. Lately, there's been a lot of frightening activity in the economy!  When Jesus sent forth His apostles, He told them not to worry about the source of their provisions (Luke 10:1-4).

The assurance was given in a broader fashion in Matthew 6:25-33. The Lord promised, "But seek ye first the kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." A rich young man once thought that he could continue indefinitely making plans for his economic security, but God called him a "fool" and said that his soul would be required of him (Luke 12:20).Jesus told us that we are not to worry about the future. We can't improve on the instructions of God, so let's keep faith in the promises of God no matter how bad our economy gets.
