Several years ago I preached a sermon from Matthew 6:25-34, where Jesus exhorts us not to worry. I reasoned that worry is a sin, since Jesus tells us not to do it. He says that trusting God in everything is the cure for worry.
While I was preaching, I noticed a young girl who was sitting next to her grandmother. The girl was obviously upset, wiping away tears throughout the entire sermon. I didn’t think too much of it; sometimes little girls get upset over minor things.
After church, the lady told me why her granddaughter was crying. It was because she worried a lot, and she didn’t want to disobey Jesus!
Isn’t it refreshing to know that some people have such a great desire to obey the Lord? Oh, that we all would have such tender hearts!
“…Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts…”—Psalm 95:7-8.
