When Your Get up and Go Has Got up and Gone

Mary & Martha Sermon
Scripture: Luke 10:38-42

I worry when I:

Add: what others expect of me, think of me, need to be accepted
Results in anger

Subtract: God’s presence, God’s timing, prayer, perspective
Results in doubt

Multiply: the what if factor…
Results in fear

Divide: My life from God (dual identity)
Results in forgetting who is in charge

Worry is like fog where small particles of water brings large cities to a halt…
The little cares of life can totally shutdown living

Remember: who is in charge / control
Analogy of tandem bike: when we lead it is boring, when God leads it is exciting, sometimes scary, but all God wants us to do is peddle…
