Only worry on Wednesday

J. Arthur Rank, the English movie mogul, made a decision to do his worrying only on Wednesdays. He would write down his worries, put them in his worry box and forget about them until the following Wednesday. What he found was that when he opened his worry box most of his worries were already settled and consequently there was nothing left to worry about.
It’s estimated that forty percent of what we worry about concerns things that will never happen, thirty percent on things from the past that can’t be changed, twelve percent on criticism by others – mostly untrue, ten percent about health – which gets worse when you worry, and only eight percent about real problems that have to be faced.
The best advice comes from Jesus. ‘Worry about doing what God wants you to do, and let him worry about the rest.’
