We worry when gas rises above $4 a gallon; much of the world would be happy to earn this much money in one day.
We worry what people will think about us; others are constantly reminded that there are people trying to kill their entire race (in fact, they even teach their children that this is a glorious thing to do).
We’re distressed when our husbands have to work a few minutes of overtime; others fear that they may not ever be able to respectfully bury their husbands.
We’re concerned that our carrots may have been genetically engineered; elsewhere, 14 million people are starving to death.
World news isn’t usually a pleasant read. But sometimes it helps to put things into perspective. Still, whatever they may be, they are still anxieties to the one who bears the burden, regardless how trite they may seem to others. And we can cast them on Him for He cares for us (1 Peter 5:8)..
