    A message about not being so concerned about things in which we have no control over in life because there are much bigger things to be concerned about. Just as we are tempted to envy the prosperity of the wicked so was Jeremiah but he learned not to.

    Opening illustration: Can you imagine what it would be like to be at a track meet waiting for the start of the 100 meter race? Gathered together are the top runners from across the world. Fractions of a second separate these runners. While the marathon is a test of stamina and endurance, the 100 ...read more
