Do not succumb to the calls to fear. From the Left and the Right, leaders of our society and managers of the economy are telling us the sky is falling and the only thing we can do is anxiously wring our hands. This is not the time for hand wringing, rather it is the exact moment in which we are to live by faith and not just talk about faith. If we walk by faith rather than sight, then the reign of God is the reality we live by rather than falling stocks, bank failures, and diminishing buying power. Resist the notion that we rise and fall on the market; instead, embrace the promises of God. It is especially in times like these that he can be believed and trusted. This kind of rebellion against fear produces hope within us and gives witness to those in despair of the hope that is in Jesus Christ. Resist the calls to fear. Fear not!
