Financial Fear

by Joe on March 2, 2010

Fear is one of the strongest emotions that most people express about their financial circumstances.
Some of the fear is unjustified; but we all do experience these emotions at a point in life. Sometimes it is triggered by a thought of losing a job, panic when the stock market is plunging or other factors.

I have caught myself on several occasions letting my mind wonder and worry about what might happen; like what would i do if i was unable to provide for my family?  I have also discovered that fear robs us the opportunity of enjoying today’s life to its utmost.

As Christians though, we are called to resist the natural urge to fear by committing those worries to God.

“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? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” (Mathew 6:25-27NIV)

This is our confidence even when times seem hard. We have a father in heaven
