On Worry

Sunday continues the sermon series on "The Sermon on the Mount" looking at Matthew 6:25-34 and worry. Dissecting worry is no easy task. With good help from a friend who is a psychologist, I had a tutorial in differentiating between fear, anxiety and worry. Fear is focussed. Anxiety is more ambiguous. Worry is cognitive.
But Jesus tells us to look twice (at the birds and at the flowers) and seek once (the Kingdom of God and his righteousness). Jeanne and Martha combined the birds and the flowers with the opulent arrangement that includes the weaving of nesting branches.

Fear is usually based on something tangible. Anxiety on something intangible.
