In the late 90’s Dr. Richard Carlson became famous for a small widely popular self-help book called, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff (And it’s all small stuff). In 100 chapters, each only a few pages long, Dr. Carlson shares his ideas for living a calmer, richer life. Long before Dr. Carlson came along, Jesus provided the original message addressing our need to stop sweating the small stuff. He constantly reiterated the need to focus your life on something other than stuff. Dr. Carlson has his own reasons why we shouldn’t stress the small stuff, but let’s see what Jesus says is the reason we shouldn’t stress the small stuff.
