There are few words of Jesus more profound and yet more difficult to live out than when he said,
Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Do you ever wonder where worry comes from? I bet if we were to sit down over a cup of coffee and I asked you where your worry was coming from you would probably tell me about the problems of your life. You might say, Worry comes from…
-My relational troubles
But I think this is an illusion. Worry isn’t the result of your problems. Worry is the result of you thinking you can control your problems.
I know it’s easier said than done, but Jesus is in essence saying “I want you to stop obsessing about the future and trust that I hold the future.”
Can you do that? Will you do that?
