Daily Devotional: Worry Is Selfishness in Disguise (4/7/12)

Daily Devotional: Worry Is Selfishness in Disguise

Prayer Starter: Father God, thank You for showing me that worry is a sin. Help me to get rid of my selfish, ungodly desires so that I can simply pursue Your destiny for me.

Romans 14:23 But whoever has doubts is condemned if they eat, because their eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin. (NIV)

The author states that "worry is based on one particular sin: selfishness." I had thought of that before, but it makes sense. I worry about how things are going to turn out for me and my family. I want good things to happen and so worry about what might go wrong. It is so difficult for me to let go of everything and put God in charge.
