Bible Study Moment

Matthew 6:25-34 says to not worry. It might be summed up by a couplet in a Larry Norman song that says “It never helps to worry, it never hurts to pray.” (Norman is one of the earliest Jesus Music-CCM- musicians.) Around the time he wrote that I was living in the dorm at college my freshmen year. There was a group of us trying to actively follow Jesus living in the dorm who had become friends. During finals week one of the girls was worried about a final of hers later that day. Some of us referenced this passage, and if I remember correctly I turned to it and read it, including the last sentence, “Each day has enough trouble of its own.” which didn’t really help her that much.
