The humble are care free

  |  0 Comments

The humble are care free. Where there is worry, anxiety, anxiousness there is pride. The root of worry and anxiety is self-sufficiency. God gives grace to those who humble themselves and cast each and every care on him. The effect of this act is the weakening of pride and the experience of peace and joy.

Materialism

Dietrich BonhoefferThe way to misuse our possessions is to use them as an insurance against the morrow. Anxiety is always directed to the morrow, whereas goods are in the strictest sense meant to be used only for to-day.

Anxiety

Anxiety is one of our modern plagues. Its effects are visible everywhere, interfering with our happiness and our ability to live productively. Anxiety limits our connections with other people, saps our energy, reduces our focus and our skillfulness and undermines our health. (Psychology Today,. ‘Anxiety: A Modern Plague’. N.p., 2015.

Taking anxiety on yourself

You can be quite a good Christian and even build a great ministry, and still not be able to trust fully in the loving Father to care for your needs; you end up taking all the responsibility and anxiety upon yourself.

A doctor examined his patient

A doctor examined his patient and concluded that nothing physical was wrong with him. He said, “You probably have some business or social problem that you should talk over with a good counselor. I dealt with a case very similar to yours only a few weeks ago. This patient of mine had a $5,000 debt that he could not pay. Because of his financial problem he had worried himself into a state of nervous exhaustion.”

“And did you cure him?” asked the patient.

“Yes,” said the doctor. “I told him just to stop worrying, that life is too short to make himself sick over a silly little scrap of paper. Now he’s back to normal; he stopped worrying.”

“I know,” said the patient, “I’m the one he owes the $5,000 to, and that’s what I’m worried about.”

Fresh out of business school, a young man answered a want ad for an accountant. Now he was being interviewed by a very nervous man who ran a small business that he had started himself. "I need someone with an accounting degree," the man said. "But mainly, I’m looking for someone to do my worrying for me." "Excuse me?" the accountant said. "I worry about a lot of things," the man said. "But I don’t want to have to worry about money. Your job will be to take all the money worries off my back." "I see," the accountant said. "And how much does the job pay?" "I’ll start you at eighty thousand." "Eighty thousand dollars!" the accountant exclaimed. "How can such a small business afford a sum like that?" "That," the owner said, "is your first worry."

John Stott has said, "To become preoccupied with material things in such a way that they engross our attention, absorb our energy and burden us with anxiety is incompatible with both Christian faith and common sense. It is distrustful of our heavenly Father, and it is frankly stupid. This is what pagans do; but it is an utterly unsuitable and unworthy ambition for Christians." We are not spiritual orphans. God loves and cares for us — He has all the resources of eternity at His hand for our disposal.
