Caring too Much

I began today in an updated edition of Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening devotional.

The text is “Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you.” Psa 55:22.

The words that followed were hard for me to deny. We can care too much. The thought surprised me by hiding behind the assumption that we can never love too much those we’d be willing to live and die for.

Without taking anything from those entrusted to our care, and without implying that a no-worry rule could solve our problems, is it possible that, when our worries for others begin to feed on our trust in God—what we assume to be our best intentions—are not?
