The late Rick Majerus was perhaps best known for being the men’s basketball coach at the University of Utah. Majerus was also known for his witty comments. He once had this to say about people’s concerns about the economy: “Everyone’s worried about the economy this year. Hey, my hairline is in recession, my waistline is in inflation, and altogether, I’m in depression.”
Jesus says that we shouldn’t waste time worrying about economic matters. Instead, we should trust in our heavenly Father to provide for us.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?…But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”—Matthew 6:25,33-34.
