Fear never wrote a symphony or poem,
negotiated a peace treaty, or cured a disease.
Fear never pulled a family out of poverty
or a country out of bigotry.
Fear never saved a marriage or a business.
Courage did that.
Faith did that.
People who refused to consult
or cower to their timidities did that.
But fear itself?
Fear herds us into a prison
and slams the doors.
Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?
By Max Lucado
How is fear driving and motivating so much of the turmoil going on in our country right now?
How has fear got a hold on YOU in matters far beyond the Covid-19 pandemic?
