Worry is one of the most destructive emotions to winning with money. Jesus commanded “Don’t worry about your life.” The prayer for “this day’s bread” is a continuous reminder that regret of yesterday’s bread wasted and fear of tomorrow’s lack is worthless.
35 years ago Merle wrote this beautiful poem/song:
I wish a buck was still silver
It was back when the country was strong
Back before Elvis
Before the Vietnam war came along
Before The Beatles and ‘Yesterday’
When a man could still work, still would
The best of the free life behind us now
And are the good times really over for good?
Wish a Ford and a Chevy
Could still last ten years, like they should
Is the best of the free life behind us now?
Are the good times really over for good?
Are we rolling down hill
Like a snowball headed for Hell?
With no kind of chance
For the Flag or the Liberty Bell
People were worried and scared and afraid 3.5 years ago, 35 years ago, and 350 years ago. Fear destroys Faith and Thanksgiving, both of which are overwhelming indicators of happiness. “Do not be anxious about anything.” Including money. Including elections.
