Hypothetical Worrying

Many years ago, I took a class where the teacher wanted to make a point with hypothetical thinking.  She began by asking what if we had two heads?  Would we wear a hat on each head and would our hair be the same color?  She went on this way while the class saw this exercise comical, annoying and then irritating, but she was making a point.  How often do we question the future with a number of “what ifs?”  What if this happens or what if that happens?  Whenever I am tempted down that road of thinking, immediately, I ask myself “What if I had two heads?”

Luke 12:22-25 states “Then Jesus said to His disciples: ‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear…Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them.  And how much more valuable you are than birds!  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?'”

  1. How valuable is your blog today!!! Worrying is never productive, practical or useful and one head of hair is enough to deal with much less two. 😉 Thank you very much!! 😘
