What offered you the greatest challenge or blessing, and why?

Read Matthew 6:25-34.

What one word defines what this section of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount is about?

Matthew 6:34 tells us not to worry or be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of your tomorrow too. Live one day at a time.

How is an anxious-free person of faith to live their life?

What does that mean to you?
