Be Not Afraid

The media is constantly trying to make us terrified these days.

But, this is not new:

“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet. – Matt 24:6ff


The best words of Jesus, now and always:

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing.
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his span of life?
And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well.” – Matt 6:28ff

Spring is here! And no little virus can stop it!

  1. Beautiful, Dan.

    On a short walk tonight, I was stopped (“cornered”) by a rabbit in the yard on my left and a robin on the sidewalk ahead of me. We stood observing one another for some nice minutes. 🙂

    1. The animals must find us silly humans entertaining! The birds, herds of deer, squirrels, all are perfectly happy in their nothingness. All this will pass in a few months and we’ll all probably feel embarrassed at how terrified we allowed ourselves to get.
      We hung up our hammocks in the trees yesterday! The Grandkids had a great time. My son and family all live with me know, and he’s working at home because of the “crisis”. But it’s a good thing. We’re all together as a family everyday, just like it used to be in the old days on the farm!
