Something That Doesn't Work

I recently purged my house.

I gathered all unnecessary items in every single room and closet of my house, and then took them to the garage.

Right now, in my garage, you can find a lawn mower that doesn’t work, a weed wacker that doesn’t work, a treadmill that doesn’t work, a TV that doesn’t work, and a microwave that doesn’t work.

Since these items don’t work, I plan on calling a junk removal service to pick this stuff up. I’m getting rid of these items because there’s no point of holding on to stuff that doesn’t work.

And just like these items in my garage don’t work, worrying doesn’t work either.

On the issue of worrying, in Matthew 6, Jesus offers refreshing insight: “Can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? . . . If God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will God not much more clothe you—you of little faith?”
