There are many troublesome things in life: the economy, poverty, crime, and disease, just to name a few. And if these issues aren’t enough, there’s also the worry associated with everything that’s just beyond our control.
Worry can dominate your life.
So can fear.
“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” ~ Matthew 6:34, the Bible
It’s easy to fall victim to worry and fear.
Did you realize that the Bible mentions some version of the phrase “Do not worry” or “Do not fear” over 200 times?
What can we conclude from this? — We are going to worry. It’s a natural, human experience.
I think the goal is not to eliminate worry and fear, because it can serve a good purpose.
