Don't Worry... Jack

Matthew 6 falls in the middle of Jesus' famous sermon on the mount. It come shortly after the Beatitudes (Blessed are the...). It contains a section that encourages us not to worry. Easier said than done, right?

ODB has a devotion today that talks about Jack, an orange and white cat, who chased a bear up a tree guarding his owner's house. Just think, if a little cat can scare off a big bear, how much more can God protect us? Knowing that God is in control, what is left to worry about?

I've been preparing for a number of things lately that have caused people around me to worry, growing close to panic. "You need to call so-and-so" I hear, "If you wait too long it won't work out." Funny, it all seems to be working out in the end. It's not because I'm overly faithful or anything, it's just that things have a way of working out whether we worry or not. So why worry?
