Truth Treasure: Don’t Forfeit Peace

“’So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.’” Matthew 6:34

I used to be a worrier, but one day God used this passage to open my eyes to the foolishness of fretting. It wastes our time and energy, steals our peace and joy, and negatively affects our loved ones around us.

Jesus wisely asked, “And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?” (v. 25). Worrying can take time away from your life, but will never add to it.

What if every time we were tempted to get anxious we talked to God, instead? What if we let go of trying to be in control of every little detail and instead just chose to trust God? Don’t forfeit the incredible peace that could be yours simply by heeding Jesus’ words.
