Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future but from trying to control it. (Khalil Gibran, 19th – 20th century Lebanese American writer)

Anxiety is widespread among people of all ages and nationalities. A lot of it has to do with concerns about the future—the 2024 elections, for example. In spite of Gibran’s observation, there is genuine concern about the future in general. His point has merit, too, no doubt. So, rather than worry about the elections, perhaps we should volunteer and help control the outcome.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done (Philippians 4:6).
