Do Not Worry!

21909694_sWe are in a series called What is Love Anyway? To read all of this series scroll back to The Beatitudes of Love, 11/9/2013.

James P. Gills, writes; “The road to agape love is paved with hindrances, or attitudinal characteristics of selfishness which prevent our ability to love God and other human beings.” Today we begin looking at the hindrances to love, the first is worry.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life,

what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.

Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Mat 6:25

Worry is a defined by Gills, “as a devastating mental attitude related to self-pity which can destroy a person’s life and the lives of those around21052781_s him.” He also reminds us that some people believe worrying about others means they love them more, which is a total deception from the enemy.

Being worried not only is a hindrance to love but it also steals our joy as that which we are worried about become the burden we carry, instead of praying and giving our worry to God to receive the peace of God as Phil 4:6  tells us.
