Stressing, Worrying & Anxiousness…

Our family -1 were having a conversation about stressing, worrying & anxiousness. See, my wife’s work is putting to many demands on her for a 40 hour per week job. She is doing 3 jobs wrapped up into 1. By the way, she is salaried (what that actually means is you are doing much more than what the original job called for), & she is stressing big time.

Did you ever know that wisdom comes from the mouth of children? Well, it did for my wife as our yougest child (14) said that stressing is a form of worrying, & she said it liked she believed it.
The rest of us adults, should take warnings from our children-stressing, worrying, & anxiousness will kill us. Don’t believe it’s true? Tell ya what. I’m going to prove it to you as a rabbi 2000 years ago said something about this very issue; he said, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, & the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And by which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to the span of his life?” Obviously, to us true life Christians, this saying comes from Jesus Christ, specifically from Matthew 6:25-27. Wise, huh. Who knew that wisdom could be found in the Scriptures? Especially what Jesus said. Hmm…
