Fear or Faith.
When we allow fear to control us we become part of the problem.
How can we overcome fear?
We say "God has forsaken the earth."
We have little faith.
If we had faith in the Love of God we would not be afraid.
"There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear." 1 John 4:18a (NRSV)
Were we to believe that God cares for us we would not need to build up huge reserves of money and possessions.
There would always be enough.
We could live with less.
And less is more.
