What Causes Stress?

Defining the universal problem of stress.


Everyone experiences some kind of stress, and it's impossible to get rid of all stress. For some, stress can even be motivational. The word stress does not occur in the Bible, but distress, distressed, distresses, and distressing occur in the NIV 111 times. So clearly the Bible has a lot to say about this human phenomenon.
