STOP AND THINK – Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less. (Marie Curie, pioneering Polish-French scientist)

It seems like a lot of people are living in fear of one thing or another—their health, natural disasters, world-wide conflict. Madame Curie suggests that if we can understand life’s real situations, we would have less to fear. Surely, it is true that knowledge and understanding can relieve fear, but life involves more than the physical and mental. Don’t forget the spiritual!

For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
