Your Life, Food, Clothes... Why Worry?

by Robert Deffinbaugh, pastor, teacher, elder, via

Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. (Luke 12:22-23)

"Jesus asks a simple question, “What person has ever increased his stature (or lengthened his life) by worrying about it?”211 We know the answer. No one has ever done so. If worrying is so futile an activity because it doesn’t work, even in such a small matter, why then is worry consuming so much of our time and of our energy? We all know that worry is unproductive, indeed, counter-productive, and yet we persist at it."
