In the 1970s “worry stones” were popular. These were flat, polished rocks that people were supposed to put in their pockets. When they felt like worrying, they would rub these stones and feel better. One woman said that she had to buy many worry stones because she wore them out so quickly.
I laugh at people having worry stones. But I will admit that I have spent many hours worrying about things that never happened. Most people think that worrying about their problems will help solve them. But what we need to do is give our worries to God.
Verse 29 of our Bible Reading says, “So don’t always think about what you will eat or what you will drink. Don’t worry about it.” Verse 30 tells us that God knows what we need, so we don’t need to worry about it.
If you are tempted to worry today, don’t think about your problems. Instead, think about God. Depend on Him to help you solve your problems.
