Why do we worry? Why do we toil?... Jesus already told us, it's about relationship with Him... It's about having an eternal relationship. It's not about keeping this flesh alive. It's about living in this flesh until He chooses to take us out of this flesh.

Luke 12:13-34

How many of you worry about sharing your faith because of what someone might think of you? How many of you keep your mouths closed because you’re worried about how you might be perceived or received?
