Tuesday, December 8: Fear is not novel

Fear is not novel

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

John 14:27 (NIV)

The novel COVID-19 (Coronavirus) panic reminded us fear is not novel. If you live in Texas and there’s a hint of ice within 500 miles, you’ve seen it before. The run on milk alone is repeated every time Armageddon of one type or another rolls around. Admittedly, this situation is a little different, but the principles are still the same.

First, times like these remind us human beings are still pretty frail and insecure. Second, fear of the unknown runs deep in most people, and a stubborn self-centeredness—even if buried deeply—can rise to the surface when people can’t see far down the road.
