My friend, Patty, was very sick. She was in a lot of pain. But her doctor did not know what was wrong with her.
Finally, the doctor found out that Patty had a disease. This disease was caused by worry and eating the wrong foods. So Patty changed her diet, starting exercising more and tried not to worry. Soon she didn’t have any pain at all.
Then several years later, Patty’s pain came back. She wondered why she was suffering again. Patty thought about her life, and she realized that she was worrying a lot. Worry was causing her to be sick again.
In our Bible Reading today, Jesus talked about worrying. He said that things like food and clothes are not really important. Then in verse 34 Jesus said, “So don’t worry about tomorrow. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Tomorrow will have its own worries.”
Do you worry about things in your life? Stop worrying and trust God to take care of you today.
