Walking through the park with a friend, we came upon a squirrel.
When I see these creatures in my own yard, they are quite shy and usually run away if I come close.
This was not the case with our little park friend.
Instead, he was very comfortable approaching us, hoping to be fed, no doubt.
He had come to trust other visitors and he felt safe with us.
Fear is a very strong emotion.
As Christians, we are not to live fearful lives.
2 Timothy 1:7 reads,
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
We are to experience life with power.
Life with love.
Life with a sound mind.
