Do Not Worry

Based on Matthew 6:25-34, this powerful spoken word explores our Covid-centred worries and then takes us back to the Bible basics

Surviving? Thriving? In lockdown is this even possible?! We feel out of control and restricted by all Covid ‘Do Not’ rules.

But God is in control and he isn’t restricted. He is the bread of life and alone can fully satisfy. We can trust that the God who feeds the birds and clothes the flowers will look after us. 

The lockdown ‘Do Nots’ might feel confining, but the Bible’s ‘Do Nots’ are liberating.

Possible Discussion Questions

  • Do you live like God is in control? Or do you look too far ahead? 
  • Do you think not worrying could be freeing? Why/why not?
