God’s Teaching on Anxiety is Clear, Compelling and Direct

Just as Matthew 6 is Jesus’ great statement on worry, Philippians 4 is the apostle Paul’s charter on how to avoid anxiety.  These passages are the most comprehensive portions of Scripture dealing with our topic and therefore are foundational to understanding how God feels about anxiety and why He feels that way.  The teaching is clear, compelling and direct.
