How many side effects of worry are you experiencing?

Worry may:

  • Damage your health.
  • Cause the object of your worry to consume your thoughts.
  • Disrupt your productivity 
  • Negatively affect the way you treat others
  • Reduce your ability to trust in God

The difference between worry and genuine concern:

Worry immobilizes, but concern moves you to action.

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life,
what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear.
Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
Look at the birds of the air;
they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you no much more valuable than they?
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"
-Jesus, Matthew 6:25
