Scripture: Matthew 6:34
It is easy to worry as we live through the COVID-19 pandemic. Who wouldn't worry right now? Our lives have been upended by staying at home, schools are closed, churches are not meeting for worship, and much-anticipated gatherings and events have been cancelled. We read news articles about pain and suffering around the world. We do not know what will happen tomorrow, let alone a month or a year from now. And, as communities start to ease shelter-in-place restrictions, we will see how our world will adapt to a "new normal," but none of us know what that will be.
Today's Scripture verse reminds us that, even in the midst of change and uncertainty, we don't need to worry about what will happen tomorrow, or a month, or a year from now. Jesus reminds us that we need to focus on today, the present. He is with us and will always be, no matter what happens We need to just "be" in the moment, focus on the now, and take comfort in the presence of Christ. This is hard for all ages to do. Today's activities are designed to give you ways to focus on the present moment, and not the unknown.
