Do not Worry Nor Be Afraid


When we worry “We are taking upon ourselves the responsibility that belongs to God, and thus are really putting ourselves in His place. We may well have anxiety and anticipate danger and loss, for it is certain to befall us. But when we really believe that God loves us and means to do us good, we shall cease to worry about the future.” – Mind Character and Personality p. 468

  • Jesus told his disciples not to worry at all about anything Luke 12:22.
  • Jesus told His disciples that they should not be afraid – Luke 12:4.
  • Jesus calls His disciples not to worry, not to fear but to put first the Kingdom of God – Luke 12:29-31.
“Life does not consist of possessions, and it is foolish, indeed incredibly myopic, to think that one’s responsibilities in life have come to an end if one has been able to secure one’s economic future. True wealth is only accumulated when one has God in mind in the use of one’s economic means.” WBC vol.35b p.684

God does not condemn prudence and foresight in the use of the things of this life; but the feverish care, the undue anxiety, with respect to worldly things is not in accordance with his will.— Counsels on Stewardship, 159.
