Luke 12: 22-23 ” Then Jesus said to His disciples: ‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, or what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.’ “

As I sat pondering these verses, I wondered just how many hours of my life I’ve frittered away worrying over things I had absolutely no control over?  Jesus wanted His disciples to take on a eternal perspective of their temporal lives here on earth.  In other words, He was telling them to look at their human bodies and worldly possessions through the lens or view of eternity.  And besides, Jesus continued, worrying is a waste of time and can’t add a single hour to our lives. (Matthew 6:27)
