About Fears

I just stumbled into a church fellow's blog and bumped into his post about worry and fears in life. A simple thing that he learned from pigeons he came across in the street.

Gee, I guess I have been skipping church for way too long so that I totally forgot of the existence of the book of life. I forgot that I should be able to find solace there and shall not fear nor worry about things.

The book has all the answers for life's FAQs.

Luke 12: 24-34

24. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? 25. And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? 26. If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? 27. Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? 29. And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. 31. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. 32. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33. Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Cross verse reference found: 

Matthew 6:25 -34

25. Therefore, I say unto you, take no thought for your life. What ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body; what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat and the body than raiment? 26. Behold the fowls of the air; for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27. Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28. And why ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin 29. And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is and tomorrow is cast into oven, [shall He] not much more [cloth] you, O ye of little faith? 31. Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32. (For all these things do the Gentiles seek) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33. But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof.

The latter words of wisdom are my front-runner Bible verses yet commonly forsaken. I am a Christian by faith but don't really practice religiously Christianity. I tend to seek when I need only. Don't follow me on this. Not a good example. You should find God every time, not only when you need Him. Anyway, I think no need to be one to appreciate the good gist from the book of life and other life lessons from other beliefs. Some things are just good to know as it holds true in life.
