And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span?
LUKE 12:25
In the depths of every person’s heart, in the secret place where no one else knows the thoughts, we are usually able to find a worry or two or three in there. Even in the hearts of those who are laughing and smiling. We worry about so many things. We worry about disobedience and sin, about feelings of guilt. We worry about daily problems, the past, people and decision problems, problems related to work, home, relationships, finances, school, children etc… you name it, we worry about it. So many cares and burdens that steal our joy.
One of the problems with worry is that it keeps you from enjoying what you have. When you worry about what you don’t have, you won’t be able to enjoy what you already have. That is what Jesus was talking about in Matthew 6:25: “I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall eat, or what you shall drink. …” Worry is assuming responsibilities that you cannot handle. The truth is that your problems are responsibilities that God never intended for you to handle because they are His. For He says, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 1st Peter 5:7.
So cast all your cares upon Him and leave it there in Jesus mighty name. Amen!
