The Temporary Importance of Fear
Passage: Psalm 27
“If our hearts delight in God and his face, then we can contemplate losing earthly joys without fear. Even if our parents forsake us, we can face it, if enemies try and take us down we can face it, if people slander us, we can hold our integrity and be silent. Why?—if our greatest treasure—communion with the living God—is safe, what is there to be afraid of?
But we’re not done with fear yet. It still has something to teach us.
Our fears show us where we have really located our heart’s treasure. Follow the pathway of the fear back into your heart and you may just find the thing you love more than God”
