Continue praying, keeping alert, and always thanking God. Colossians 4:2
Two words summarize Christ's opinion of worry: irrelevant and irreverent.
"Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Of course not" (Matt. 6:27 NLT). Worry is irrelevant. It alters nothing. When was the last time you solved a problem by worrying about it?
Imagine someone saying, "I got behind in my bills, so I resolved to worry my way out of debt." It doesn't happen! Worry changes nothing. You don't add one day to your life or one bit of life to your day by worrying.
And not only is worry irrelevant, doing nothing; worry is irreverent, distrusting God.
The previous is an excerpt from Max Lucado, "Grace For The Moment."
