What about it

It's great not worrying about the future like the rest of America.

One of the most popular questions asked at a job interview by the person being interviewed is what is the company’s 401K like? This question sheds light on the topic that Americans are incredibly worried about the future. Parents are worried about their children’s future, while they are worried about the economy and their retirement funds. Wouldn’t it be great if there was something out there that made you worry-free about the future? Something that would take all the stress away in everyone’s lives. Well fortunately for us there is an answer. In my own life I know I don’t need to worry about a thing, and let me tell you it is great. My trust comes from the Man himself, Jesus Christ. Through my faith in Him, I know he is in control, and I have nothing to worry about.
