Fear of the Future
Growing up in hard times had a lasting impact on Christina’s mother. They lost everything in the Great Depression and, even now, little things – like aluminum foil or wrapping paper – were never thrown away.
For those who know what it’s like to not have enough, the fear of the future can create lasting worries.
Philippians says, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
But also remember the Scripture says, “For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either.”
We have a certain future in Christ – we know how the story ends. So we don’t need to hold too tightly to what we have on earth. Instead, we must trust God for all we need today.
