Jesus has a question for you,
“And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?” (Luke 12:25)
According to Jesus, if we, by worrying, can’t do something as simple as add a single hour to the span of life then why worry about life at all? Worry is pointless because it can’t meet any of our needs; worry is foolish because instead of improving our circumstances it simply worsens them; worry is faithless because it denies the Creator of the universe loves us and knows what we need. Our Father promises to meet all our real needs, but not necessarily all our desires and that’s where we get confused. Worry and anxiety are not the answer to the issues of life, especially over which we have no control… faith is the answer. Oh Lord, calm our anxious hearts. Help our unbelief. Increase our faith. Amen.
