Here’s the Bible verse I discussed on EWTN Radio’s The Son Rise Morning Show today:
“And which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his span of life?” (Luke 12:25)
Good question, isn’t it? The words of Jesus remind us that worry is useless. It doesn’t help us at all. Instead of choosing to worry, doesn’t it make sense to say a prayer instead, or to do what we can to fix the problem? Although it can be difficult, we can train ourselves to break the worrying habit.
Today, let’s do our best to remember Jesus’ question and turn to prayer instead of worrying. Even though you still might feel anxious, you’ll be on your way to achieving greater peace in your life and you’ll be following the Lord’s instructions.
Give it a try and let me know what happens. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
