Worry

Worry is a deceptive luxury we must not covet. One unknown source gives a breakdown of what the average person worries about: 40% focus on things that will never happen, 30% deal with the past that can’t be changed, 12% concern criticism by others, mostly untrue, 10% relate to health, which worsens with anxiety, and only 8% are about legitimate concerns that require action. Statistics aside, the observation confirms that worry is an exercise in futility. There are two things we should never worry about: (i) things we cannot change and (ii) things we can change. Think about it! Then reflect on Christ’s words in Matthew 6:25-34. Worry is shortsighted and blind, but faith has vision. So, why worry?—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
