Fear is everywhere. Turn on the television; pick up a newspaper; listen to the radio. It has a hold on us—one that won’t let go and that we cannot shake on our own. In a world full of uncertainty, it’s accessible and easy grab hold of. And fear, whether we realize it or not, directly affects our leadership. It urges us to trust its uncertainty rather than trusting in the assurance found in Christ.
We need not search far to see fear’s destructive grip. But there is a better way—one that provides peace and happiness, joy and contentment.
