Ep 44: Sermon on the Mount: Worry, Anxiety, and Considering the Birds
Perhaps more than ever we're living in a day of worry and anxiety. But this isn't new. Over 2,000 years ago Jesus stood on the edge of the Sea of Galilee and addressed our tendency to let anxiety overtake us. We're continuing to move through Jesus' Sermon on the Mount where we'll find real help for our anxious souls. 

A sneak peek at what's in store? When we treasure the wrong things our hearts become anxious. But when our hearts value eternal things-our relationship with God and others-our treasures are secure. One of my favorite parts of Jesus' sermon is when He tells us to look at the birds and flowers to see how He cares for them. How much more He cares for us! We're unpacking all of this and more. I hope you'll join me for some soul rest in this episode.

The Cultivate Podcast is all about deepening our understanding of Scripture for a deeper love of Jesus. That's my simple hope. Yet we live in a crazy busy culture that makes it hard to prioritize Bible study. Not to mention, for many of us the Bible can be plain confusing or intimidating. That's why I'm so excited about this podcast! We'll get to study God's Word together.

Absolutely nothing has gone after every crevice of my heart like Scripture. It's the most relevant and alive book on earth and I can't wait for God to meet you exactly where you're at as we open the Bible together. I also happen to love cooking, gardening, having people over, and deep relationships. So I'll always do my best to keep it real, practical, and personal. Whether you're brand new to the Bible or a seasoned student of Scripture, I hope you'll join me on this hopeful journey.

About Kelly Minter

Hi There. My name is Kelly Minter and I'm a Bible study author and teacher. I've written several Bible studies for Lifeway, including Finding God Faithful, All Things New, No Other Gods, Ruth, and a few others. I love to teach the Bible at my Cultivate Events across the country and also locally at my home church. I have a passion for missions, which is why I also work in the Amazon jungles of Brazil and the Eastern European country of Moldova with Justice & Mercy International. I wrote a book about my work in the Amazon called Wherever The River Runs. It's dear to my heart. I also love cooking, gardening, and having people to my house. It turns out, I pretty much wanted to write about that too, so a cookbook called A Place at the Table was born. Mostly, I love engaging with people as we study God's Word together, which is why I'm especially excited about the Cultivate Podcast.

Kelly's podcasts are so so good. Full of so much wisdom and Biblical truth.


Charles Spurgeon died in 1892 not 1915 as was mentioned in Jan 3 episode. Also as much as I appreciate Kelly and her insights into God's word, one must be careful to not add our own thoughts or add toScripture what isn't there. Kelly says Mary stayed at the house while Martha ran to meet Jesus when he came back after Lazarus dies. Kelly says she thinks Mary stayed behind because she was hurt or disappointed that Jesus hadn't done something - we don't know - there are many reasons as to why she may have stayed back and the Bible doesn't tell us. she knew and learned at Jesus feet and seemed to know Jesus well. But Kelly really pushed her opinion on why Mary stayed behind and we need to be careful when teaching scripture to not let our "thoughts and opinions/beliefs" about what we think add more to what has been revealed. Again not trying to be critical but just wanted to voice my concern.
