“Do Not Worry”
Probably no wise, scientific, and spiritual injunction has suffered a worse fate of wordy praise and actual neglect than Jesus’ frequently repeated one with regard to worry. In fact, Jesus went further than merely cautioning us against this destructive mental habit. His words, “do not worry,” (Mt. 6:34) are a command.
Jesus said that we should not worry about food, clothing, shelter, or by implication, any of the necessities of life. It may seem difficult to fully accept this teaching that we do not need to worry or be afraid or anxious. However, Jesus provided the technique for making it simple and easy for us.
