Planning for tomorrow is time well spent; worrying about tomorrow is time wasted.
Sometimes it’s difficult to tell the difference.
Careful planning is thinking ahead about:
trusting in God’s guidance.
When done well, planning can help alleviate worry.
Worriers, by contrast, are consumed by fear and find it difficult to trust God.
They let their plans interfere with their relationship with God.
Don’t let worries about tomorrow affect your relationship with God today.
