Deacon Matthew Pierce:
Proverbs 29:25 (KJV)
25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.
Fear of people can hamper everything you try to do in extreme forms, it can make you afraid to leave your home. By contrast, fear God, respect, reverence and trust is liberating. Why fear people who can do no eternal harm? Instead, fear and trust God who can turn the harm intended by others into good for those who trust Him.
Jesus Christ 365
