| Dont Worry, Be Happy!
As Pastor Kevin Strickland reminded us this past Sunday, the sing-song “don’t worry, be happy” philosophy isn’t always easy to come by. On too many days, worry is plentiful and happiness illusive. We get sad, and even mad. And when we think our health, wealth, or success is in question, our focus often turns from blessings to blame.
But Jesus teaches that happiness does not rest in health, wealth, or success; true and lasting happiness rests in a God who promises blessings even when we are poor in heart, mourning, and hungering for right relationships. Even more, the philosophy Jesus invites us to sing as his disciples is one of humility, mercy, and peacemaking.
Thank you, people of Our Savior, for the many ways in which you sing the song of blessedness in Jesus’ name. Thank you for striving “to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” Thank you for the time, talent, and treasure your offer for our shared ministries.
As we sang in worship: “Rejoice and be glad! Blessed are you, holy are you! Rejoice and be glad! Yours is the kingdom of God!”
Blessings, Pastor Mark
