25 Jan Take No Thought for Your Life | Archive 12/15/13
Adults discuss the race of Santa Claus. Should kids believe? Jesus said: Do not worry about your life. Recognize God’s gifts.
Archive Sunday Service, December 15, 2013: Jesse Lee Peterson lets people know that Santa Claus is white. (This is a national controversy after Megyn Kelly asserted such on Fox News.) Some parents traumatize their children telling them Santa isn’t real! Let it be fun! //
In Matthew 6: 24-29, Jesus said, “No one can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or be attached to the first and despise the second. You cannot be the slave both of God and of money. That is why I am telling you not to worry about your life and what you are to eat, nor about your body and what you are to wear. Surely life is more than food, and the body more than clothing!
“Look at the birds in the sky. They do not sow or reap or gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they are? Can any of you, however much you worry, add one single cubit to your span of life? And why worry about clothing? Think of the flowers growing in the fields; they never have to work or spin; yet I assure you that not even Solomon in all his royal robes was clothed like one of these.” //
JLP tells stories, and others also talk about situations in their life. God will not leave you confused! If you’re in doubt, you’re serving the wrong God. //
