Reflection: Matthew 6:31-34
Matthew 6:31-34 (Monday of the 22nd Week in Ordinary Time)
Today’s Gospel begins with the words: “Do not worry.” “Worry” is something that we human beings do all the time. We worry about the “big” things and rightly so. However, we often worry about the “little” things in life. Life would be so much better if we didn’t have so much to “worry” about! It is true that at times in our lives we do have significant difficulties or problems that we are rightly concerned about. However, worrying does not necessarily make life better. Our worry actually may intensify our concern. Perhaps the better action is to take our “worry” or “concern” to God and put it into God’s hands! Do we, do I, trust God enough to do that?
