Recently as I was reading Rob Bell’s book “What is the Bible?” (A book I highly recommend) I was hit with how we try to control everything in our lives.
Worry is our attempt to control the uncontrollable things, through the fear of what could happen, instead of trusting the Goodness of God.
Judgement is our attempt to control the lives of others, because they do not line up with how we think they should live or behave.
Both worry and Judgment are symptoms of a lack of trust that we can put things into God’s hand and trust God to do what’s best and good for both us and others.
I never had really thought about how Jesus, linked both worry and judgment together in his Sermon on the Mount. But wow- its powerful stuff!
Letting go of both, enables us to have a Hugh weight and burden lifted and then we can truly enjoy life and have peace and joy.
