We have things that cause us to worry and we can get into the habit of worrying, thus becoming a worry wart to others as well. In many cases, what we worry about does not happen and we have been a burden to ourselves and to others. Worry is the deep concern and fear that affects our daily thoughts and actions.

When Jesus walked the earth, He saw the effect of people worrying. He also saw that those whose main goals in life were physical things tended to be the greatest worriers. He said the gentiles worried about getting things, but our heavenly Father knows what we need. Our most important task is to seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness as a way of life. Then, Jesus said, the things we need will be added by God (Matthew 6:31-34 Matthew 6:31-34 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. 33 But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient to the day is the evil thereof.

). Not being a worry wart does not mean not caring; it means caring appropriately. Learning the balance makes life enjoyable.
