“Don’t worry, be happy!” Anytime I hear these words, I start singing them. Why? Because everyone older than 15 hears it in Bobby McFerrin’s voice with the sweet reggae tone behind it. It makes you smile. Worry does just the opposite. It makes you sad, depressed, and sometimes angry. One of the Christian cliché’s is “worry less, pray more,” and I firmly believe in the power of prayer. But is there more to kicking worry to the curb? In today’s verse, Paul took action. He was worried about his friends, so he sent someone to them to cheer them up, and this, in turn, cheered Paul up! When we are worried about something, we need to not only pray but act! Reach out to who it is that is worrying you. Seek counsel from wise people if a situation has your stomach in knots. Pray and act!
Philippians 2:28: “So I am all the more anxious to send him back to you, for I know you will be glad to see him, and then I will not be so worried about you.”
