worry vs care

Being weighed down with the care for those things God cares about is not worry; it is concern. God is always caring. He never worries.

Worry is all about us. 
Care is all about others.

In caring we are never alone. 
In worry we are always alone.

Never expect or demand others to share your worry. 
Always hope others will help shoulder your care.

Worry is never legitimate. 
Caring is always legitimate. 

Worry is inward focused on "me"
Care is outward focused on others 

Worry locks us up and shuts us down
Care energizes and moves us forward

We are called to always care, never to worry.

Most of us don't just worry or only care. We are usually a mixture of both but should always seek to embrace care and abandon worry. The good news is because of Christ, he loves us the same either way. 

Cast all your cares on him because he cares for you.
