Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.Famous words from a famous event. This comes from the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus was addressing a crowd on a hillside. This is one of many, many often-references words.
And boy, do I need these words.
Do you ever had stress in your life? At the end of a day, say, your head is already filled with what is likely facing you tomorrow? It's hard to break that routine, isn't it?
So read the entire sermon - Matthews 5 through 7 - to get a real feel of what Jesus was saying.
Whenever I read it, I come away with a new thought. So before I wrote this, this thought came to me: Jesus isn't saying that worry is a sin. Instead, he's trying to comfort a crowd of people who, like those of today, can be worry-ridden. Comfort we should all heed and take to heart.
