The Surprising Reason God Says Not to Worry

“Don’t worry,” my husband says. At that moment, a hundred scenarios enter my mind as I worry about the reason he felt the need to tell me not to worry. The same thing has happened when I’ve read those words, quoted from Luke 12, on coffee mugs, t-shirts, and wall decorations.

If you’re going to tell someone not to be anxious in a world plagued by sin, you need to have a good reason. Thankfully, God does…but His reason is somewhat surprising!

Read the rest on Unlocking the Bible, where I’m honored to share more.

  1. What a blessing to see your writing over at Unlocking the Bible, Bethany. And of course, the topic is right up the alley of what God has been teaching me this last year. 🙂 “You can worry with your hands full”–wow, I never thought of it it like that before, but that is exactly so. And it does about as much good as worrying with your hands empty, doesn’t it? Hugs, friend.

  2. Thanks for taking the time to come back and comment, Lois! We love Unlocking the Bible, so glad you do too!! And I love how this fits with so much of what God has been teaching you this past year, too. You’re right, worrying whatever is or isn’t in our hands does no good. Hugs back!!
