A couple of weeks ago we unpacked Matthew 6:25-34 where Jesus exhorts His disciples to not be anxious. You can listen to the audio of the sermon here (sermon title: “Don’t Worry, Be Godly”), but I thought I would share with you some thought-provoking quotes I came across as I studied for this sermon. I pray these bless you by encouraging you to have greater faith in your amazing Savior!
Anonymous – Worry is like a rocking chair; it will give you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.
Corrie Ten Boom – If a case is too small to be turned into a prayer it is too small to be made into a burden.
Corrie Ten Boom Look around and be distressed. Look inside and be depressed. Look at Jesus and be at rest.
E Stanley Jones – Worry is the interest we pay on tomorrow’s troubles
DA Carson – the root of anxiety is unbelief
George Mueller – The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety
