Make up your mind not to do it

Luke 21:14

But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves.  NIV

Make up your mind not to worry.  I love that!

Galations 5:22-23a says, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” NIV

As a Christian, I am called to exhibit self control … it is one of the fruits of the Spirit named in Galations.

Worry is something I have control over … I can “make up my mind not to do it.”  If I will exercise self control, worry is but one of the multitude of sins that I can overcome.

That’s what I’ll think about today!
