This week we’re considering
Five Life-Changing Questions
(2) Is This Worth Worrying About?
Do not let your hearts be troubled
and do not be afraid.
Worry saps stamina, triggers health problems, torpedoes optimism, impairs judgment, and smothers gratitude.
Worry doubles your trouble: if what you’re worrying about doesn’t happen, you’ve lived through it once needlessly; if it does happen, you’ll have lived through it twice.
Worrying will change neither your past nor your future but will poison your present.
“Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?” (Mt 6:27 NLT).
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything . . . If you do this you will experience God’s peace . . . His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:6–7).
Worry has never fixed anything.
