Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

Matthew 6:25-34

So, I tell you, don’t worry about the necessities of life, food, drink, clothing. Life is so much more than that! Look at the birds! They’re not warehousing food, and yet, they never go hungry. Don’t you think you’re smarter than a bird? Do you think you can extend your life by worrying yourself to death? And look at the flowers! They’ve only got one outfit; they didn’t agonize over it, and Prada can’t even come close to matching it! Think about it. If a flower that’s beautiful today but wilted tomorrow has it that good, don’t you think you’ll be alright? Get a grip!

So, don’t ask what you’ll eat, or drink, or wear. Everybody’s running on the hamster wheel after all that stuff. God knows, you’ve got needs. But if you’re focused on the goal and doing right the rest will work out. Don’t worry! If you’re constantly thinking about tomorrow, you’ll miss all the life that’s happening now!

Jesus. Bobby McFerrin. The experts agree.
