Christians and Lazy Thinking

People, by nature, are lazy thinkers.

Words for the Worried

Five times in Matthew 5:25-34 Jesus encourages His listeners to “take no thought” of various areas of concern in life. In old English to “take no thought” meant not to fret, worry, or be anxious. What did they have to be anxious or take thought about? Many of the listeners at the Sermon on t…
