What does God say about being anxious?

Most of us who grew up in the 1950’s and 60’s felt the constant threat of nuclear war and were anxious about whether we would live long enough to experience the joys this life has to offer; like the feeling of independence that comes from leaving our parents’ home to find our own way, getting jobs, getting married, having children, etc. God gives us the Biblical stories from history to help us better understand these feelings so that we might avoid the anxieties so prevalent in our society today and the drugs required to cope with them. Merriam-Webster defines anxious as: “characterized by extreme uneasiness of mind or brooding fear about some contingency.” The Bible describes this feelin

What does God say about judging others?

Does God tell us to judge others? Matt 7:1-4, “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?” Is God telling us we have plenty of our own sins to work on?

What Does God say about the stresses of this world?

“We live in a world overrun by stress. Global urbanization, competition and the spread of technology have created a world in which access to information has become an obligation and necessity.

What does God say about freedom?

Merriam-Webster defines freedom as: “the quality or state of being free: such as the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action; liberation from slavery or restraint or from the power of another; the quality of being frank, open, or outspoken answered with freedom.” Freedom is at the heart of God’s creation because His love demands the freedom He allows us. But, what does His freedom look like? 1 Pet 2:15-17, “For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.”
