from the series Laugh Again: Experience Outrageous Joy
Matthew 6:25-34; Philippians 4:4-9
In many ways, we could sum up our time as the “age of addictions.” It would be nice to think that members of the family of Jesus Christ are free from addictions, but that is only a pleasant dream. Many Christians struggle with nagging, relentless habits that defy quick ’n’ easy solutions.
Curiously enough, the most common addiction is not seen as an addiction at all. In fact, we call it normal . . . part of life in a modern and technologically advanced society. The most popular addiction? Anxiety. Just plain old worry. The good news is that God has provided an escape—a way of liberation to laugh again.
