"If you remember it in six months, it's a big deal. Everything else is chaff."
The Super Bowl is a pretty big deal. But do you remember who won the big game 10 years ago, in 2003? Or in 2005 or in 1999? And I mean without googling it or asking Siri. Do you remember where you were for the Super Bowl 10 years ago, or even last year?
I have day-to-day worries that seem incredibly minute when I put them in the context of longer spans of time. Most of my worries are entirely forgettable, which makes them very regrettable. There will be "big deals" throughout life. "Don't worry," Jesus said (Matt. 6:25), "your Father knows what you need." And He's a pretty big deal (understatement).
