Life Lesson #113
Worry does not change your situation. Being thankful in the midst of a stressful situation is the key to excellence. Can you honestly say that worry has helped a situation? It’s impossible.
Don’t Worry, Be Happy. It’s a little ethereal, but true. Spiritually, this wold be Don’t Worry, Choose to be Happy. The bible teaches this truth in Matthew 6: 25-27.
“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 important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”
Bottom line, if the birds don’t worry about what they will eat or what they will wear, let’s not sign up for that class either. None of us can say we’ve ever seen a skinny bird and their feathers (ie – clothes) are beautiful. This is probably the one time it’s good to be a bird brain!
So the next time someone calls you a bird brain, simply tell them “thanks” and remember how blessed you are.
