Do Not Fret!

Do not fret…”

Psalm 37:1

I believe this verse is as much a divine command as “You shall not steal” (Exodus 20:15).

But what does it mean to fret?

When we fret, we are a constant annoyance…while the first verse of the psalm only says, “Do not fret because of evil men” the entire psalm leaves no room for any fretting whatsoever.

Fretting, anger, worrying and being anxious are very harmful, and God does not want us to hurt ourselves or others.

Any Doctor can tell you that a fit of anger is more harmful to your system than a fever and that a disposition of continual fretting can ultimately kill the body.

It is my prayer this morning that God will grant us the grace to set worry, anger and anxiety aside once and for all and simply be obedient to the command “Do not fret.” Amen!
