Fear I

Fear does not stop death. It stops life. And worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles. It takes way today’s peace. (Source unknown)

Fear and worry seem to be widespread today even among otherwise confident, assured people. Whether it’s the coronavirus, urban violence, or political uncertainties, so many people live in fear of current dangers or the unknown future. There’s too little in the news or social media that brings calm. It’s time to look at the true source of confidence and hope rather than today’s news.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5)

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7).
