Jesus told his followers, "Do not worry." He wasn't saying we should be irresponsible or just blindly hope things will work out. Rather, he was calling us to trust: "So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them" (Matthew 6:31-32).
How might worry be a barrier to closeness with God? Even if you're not worried about starving or going without clothes, how much time does thinking about your wardrobe or your menu take? What kind of things do you spend a lot of mental energy worrying about? How might that "thinking" time distract you from your relationship with God?
