We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
Fear is a great motivator and a great problem. There are things we need to fear but other things not so much. People have fears of things that are really different. We all have things that scare us and give us pause. It’s interesting when we choose fear over systems and institutions that are there to help us get through life. The more things change in the world the greater we hold to things of our past for comfort. Progress can be a wonderful thing for some and not for others. The notion of “fear not” is mentioned many times in the Bible. However many believers I know can’t seem to get that. I have been afraid and fear has impacted my life but its a natural human emotion. Finding courage is something we have to discover on our own, in our own time. Fear not good people, hang in there.
