Frights and Delights
Why do we fear what others might think of us? We want their approval. Many foolish & regretful things are done to gain the approval of others. Proverbs 29:25 says the only defense against this danger is to maintain a reverence for God. Such a spiritual posture is always beneficial. Paradoxically, the person who fears God does not need to fear anything or anyone else. This truth was illustrated over and over again during our July & August ministries in Brazil.
