Do not Worry... do not fret...

Psalm 37:1: “Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong…”

I remembered this verse as someone told me about his problem. He has been accused of something he did not do...   and that someone spread the news about him.

I told him about the  book of  Psalm . It  shows the happy state of the godly and the short-lived prosperity of the wicked. It can be summed up in the following: “Don’t fume; don’t worry about the other guy; God is the righteous Judge. He will have the last say. Don’t worry.

Worry never solved a problem 
Worry never alleviated a pain 
Worry never paid a debt 
Worry never made an enemy a friend 
Worry never turned a wrong into a right 
Worry is the interest paid by those who borrow trouble—sometimes the troubles of tomorrow—which may never arrive anyway!
