What Shall We Eat? part 1
God does not want you to worry about anything.
Trusting God is important. God wants you to know He will give
you everything you need. That does not mean He will give you
everything you want. You need food, clothing, and shelter. You
may want a lot of things. Do you understand the difference?
Some of the things we want get in the way
of our love for God and other people. It is important to God
that His children love Him first, Others Second, and then take
care of themselves. That is how we find the special kind of joy
God wants us to have.
First - J - Jesus
Second - O- Others
Third - Y- You
The J - O - Y = JOY
Emmi Squirrel and Cami Cub are busy gathering
and storing food. They will need it when the cold weather comes.
Some of the food they need is hard to find in the winter. God
has given them a bountyful harvest! They do not worry. God is
faithful! He supplies what they need today and they know He will
take care of all of their tomorrows.
It is not bad to prepare for the future.
God is pleased when we look ahead and make good choices. He is
also pleased when we trust Him. He knows that worry is a waste
of time. When we believe God will take care of us we can be a
blessing to others as we share what we have with them. Remember,
you cannot out give God! Everything was made by Him and for Him
and He will use what is necessary to meet our needs.
