Fear is a natural part of daily life. It's so common that, often, we don't even notice it. And yet, it dominates our decisions.
Because of the value we as a society put on fear, we idolize safety, appearances, materialism, and power, turning to those things in hopes that they will lessen our anxieties. But Jesus preached a different way. In Fearless Families: Building Brave Homes in an Uncertain World
, author and pastor Kevin A. Thompson shows us that, when we are led by love, we will choose:
- trust over safety
- heart over appearances
- connection over materialism
- submission over power
Thompson demonstrates how, as we make choices based on these values, our fears will decrease and our love will increase.
