Why worry?

Matthew 6:26-27

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?Someone once told me, "Worry is like a rocking chair -- it'll give you something to do, but it won't get you anywhere." How true that is! When we worry it's usually because we have little or no control over a situation and we really wish we had complete control. But does worrying every help anything? What does that say about our faith and trust in God to work according to His will? Jesus reminds us that God takes care of birds and He'll definitely take care of us. Instead of worrying, trust God.
