One New York Times columnist said that we are living in the “Age of Anxiety.” With constant headlines about national unemployment rates and nuclear weapons, the unknowns of terrorist attacks or global warming, housing markets, interest rates, healthcare, the cost of college tuition for students who may never get a job, cancer, school shootings… ‘rock-n-roller cola wars, I can’t take it anymore!’
There seems no escaping worry and anxiety. If this is true. Then how should we understand these words from Jesus’ sermon on worry?
Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Mat. 6:25-34)
