Today we will learn from the scriptures about what our Lord Jesus tell us about worry. Matthew chapter 6 verse 27 says: “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” This is a statement question from Jesus in context of worrying written in Matthew 6:25-34.
Instead of having faith to God, most people worries of many things in their life. God already knows what we need and cares about it, just like a father cares to his children. But He is more than all fathers in earth, Father in heaven is the most kind and mighty.
There is a story long time ago. When the value of money was different with its value today. One dollar means a lot dozens years ago. So this is the story I want to tell you:
Once, there was about a young man who was applying for a job in a New England factory. Asking for the owner, he found himself in the presence of a nervous, fidgety man who looked hopelessly dyspeptic.
“The only vacancy here,” he told the applicant, “is a vice-presidency. The man that takes the job must shoulder all my cares.”
“That’s a though job,” said the applicant. “What is the salary?”
“I will pay you ten thousand a year if you really take over all my worries,” said the owner.
“Where is the ten thousand coming from?” asked the applicant suspiciously.
“That my friend,” replied the owner, “is your first worry.”
This is a true story about worry that happened in one factory interview in New England. And things like this usually happened anywhere all over the world. People worries anything, and it surrounds and fills all people’s mind. But not to the believers and faithful to God.
Problems maybe come to our life, many things to be paid, and many other case of difficulties. But this is not about the problems that we should worry about. This about us who lean to God or not, trust Him or not, faithful to Him or not.
Do not let our peace dissapeared from our heart and mind because of worries. Rejoice in the Lord and trust Him, that is all we have to do. Do our part, and God will do His part for us.
