Worry Not!

Ah, technology. I came into the office today and our computers were down. People were taking the news one of two ways. They were either relaxed and trying to get non-computer work done or they were nervous, trying to figure out how to do their job.

I was more in line with the catch up on a few things that I could do without the computer. I had no where to be and I still had the phone to answer. The question of the day is, what did we do before computers? Computers are convenient and they are very useful, but having a hard copy of everything still makes it reassuring that life will go on. Maybe that's why most of us never get rid of the phonebook or our address book. I still have a calendar I hang on the wall.

When the electric was out, we barely had cell phones, no computers and no tv. This morning, we had no computers, and people went into panic mode. I say, slow down, people! No matter what convenience you have, the only one in real control is God. He will carry you through every situation, no matter what.

25"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? 26Look 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 not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
