Who worries? Well about everyone and everything worries. The list would be endless about what we worry about. Why do we worry? We worry about things we fear may happen or fear about what won’t happen. Matthew 6: 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Worrying does nothing to make you a better person, why should we always think about what am I going to eat what am I going to wear, it is plain pointless. Later on in verse 27, it says, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” Worrying doesn’t give you anything but pain and something to fill your time.Worrying is not good for your health or well being. Worrying gives you fear and anxiety that can control your life. Proverbs 12:25 Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up. Fear and anxiety weighs you down, if your already weighed down then listen for encouraging words.

What worrying can do for you? Worrying can translate into prayer that translates into trust in God thus making your relationship grow. Philippians 4:6-7 Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. You can experience peace we exceeds anything we can understand, that is how powerful God’s thoughts are.
Worrying takes you focus off of God and puts it on yourself. God knows your needs so why do you worry about money, food, clothes, etc. It’s all in the hands of God. Let me put it this way less worrying means more trusting in God.
Matthew 6:25-34
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?26 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?27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life ?28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
