What are the differences between love and fear? Great question! Well, I have heard it said that love responds- fear reacts. Love connects- fear separates. Love uplifts- fear deflates. Love creates- fear destroys. Essentially, when we are afraid we have the tendency to become closed-minded and apply the brakes in our lives. In contrast, when we are in love, we are open to all that life have to offer; our foot is on the gas pedal! I John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” 2 Timothy 1:7 reminds us that, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” Therefore, if there is no fear in love and fear is a spirit not bequeathed by God, the choice is obvious. So today, allow the inner Truth and Light (Jesus) to guide you and don’t allow fear (Satan, the world, and your flesh) to paralyze you and keep you in darkness?
