“Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?       (Matt 6:27)

Using your mental faculties or mind to worry about things or events, is an abuse of God’s purpose of giving you such great resources. Generally, human beings are concerned about the past, the present and the future. They fear that their negative past can suddenly catch up with them. Concerning the present, people also worry whether there would ever be improvement. If things are good, they fret about continuity. The fellow without a car worries whether he will ever own a car in his life time. When he gets one, his worry becomes whether it will last – will it be stolen or will it be involved in an accident? If any of these happens, would he be able to raise enough money to replace the car? In Matt 6:25-32 our Lord Jesus Christ commands us not to be worried, fretful or ever-anxious about our past or present. Worrying over the present robs you of the joy of the moment, leaving you with hopelessness, doubt and fear. V27 of our reading today clearly tells us that if there is one activity that is totally unprofitable it is engaging in worry. It takes all your time and in turn delivers you nothing but hypertension. Any subject of worry is the future – (Matt 6:34) Most people worry about the future. Stop worrying about your future. Take all issue to Jesus and look up to Him (O.H)

PRAYER LINE: Christ is the answer to heartache, Christ is the answer to pain, though by all others forsaken, He at your side will remain – Elwell,
