Earlier this year, several of us read and discussed the Sermon on the Mount. We puzzled together over Jesus' admonition in Matthew 6:25, and why it is that Jesus would say something that appears to be an unhelpful platitude, at least in the modern world. Jim Huzzey, a professor at Newbold College suggests that the answer lies with the context of Jesus' statement ... "THEREFORE, I I tell you, do not worry ...". Jesus is building on the admonition he has just provided in verses 19 through 24; following that advice is the key to not worrying.
Fellow worriers, I hope you are uplifted by this week's study.
