Worry is selfishness in disguise

..For whatever does not originate and proceed from faith is sin[whatever is done without a conviction of its approval by God is sinful]–Romans 14:23

Too often, people give in to worry without realizing how destructive it is.When you get to the roof of it, worry is a sin. Worry certainly doesn’t come out of faith, and Romans 14:23 states that whatever dos not originate and proceed from faith is sin.

Most of the time, worry is based on one sin in particular: selfishness. Usually when we worry, we’re concerned about how our selfish desires are not being fulfilled. The more selfish desires you have, the more you have to worry about, and the more complicated your life becomes.

God wants us to simply focus on serving Him.

It is God’s will that we live our lives free from all anxiety and distressing care. he wants us to be free to serve Him without being drawn in diverging directions. We must not allow the worries of this world to divert us from His purpose for our lives.

Pray for God to help you recognize and get rid of selfish desires. This will keep your life simple and help you overcome worry. Then you can wholeheartedly pursue God’s great plan for your life.

From the book “Promises for our everyday lives”
