Being Anxious- Moment of Inspiration
There are at least two songs that were very popular at one time that address our subject today. Bob Marley sang a song called Three Little Birds with the words “Don’t worry a-bout a thing, ’cause ev-ry little thing gonna be all right”. Later Bobby McFerrin released a song “Don’t worry, Be Happy” . Some of McFerrin’s lyrics included the following:
Don’t worry be happy
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy……
Ain’t got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy
While both songs address the subject of anxiety appropriately, in this Moment of Inspiration we turn to God’s Word to listen to what the Bible says about the subject. Our title is Being Anxious and we join Clinton Williams in Matthew 6:25-34.
We hope you are enjoying these lessons and that you will share them with your friends and family.
The Cure for Anxiety
25 “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink ; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing ?
26 “Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 “And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life ?
