Are Jesus & Bob Marley saying the same thing?
"Don't worry...'about a thing...cause every little thing's gonna be alright."
While most of us enjoy listening to Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds" and the feeling it envokes, we also recognize that it is a vast oversimplification of things. I mean, there are a million things we could worry about...it's even possible that we should worry about these things if we want to be responsible. When Jesus tells us not to worry in Matthew 6 it is a command that is backed up with powerful logic and reason. Not only does Jesus command us not to worry...He explains why, how, and what we should do instead. He gives the command along with the power to fulfill it.
