We cringe when we hear about the heir who inherited a fortune and squandered it all, or the person who was entrusted to carry on a famous legacy, only to soil the family name in disgrace. Sometimes people can literally be surrounded by things that others only dream of, yet fail to do anything worthwhile with them. Today we see a young man who grew up in the presence of God’s covenant promises, but he chose to mock it and walk away from it all.
No Fear In Love
The Bible says there is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. We live our lives in fear… fear of public speaking, losing control of situations, losing our job, having our inabilities found out, fear of the unknown, fear of confrontation, even death. If you are afraid, you have not allowed God to love you. We must accept God’s love on His terms and allow His love to drive out fear.
