Jesus’ words in the Sermon on the Mount are powerful teachings for us today. “Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6: 34). We are so caught up in worrying about yesterday and tomorrow that we lose sight of the blessings of today. Look around you and consider what you have to be thankful for, not only in material blessings but in relational blessings. What do you appreciate about your mate? Tell them!
