It is said that the bible contains 365 admonitions to “fear not”. I have never really counted them but I will take other people at their word. That sounds about right to me, one “fear not” for every day of the year. Last night all the news casts were heralding an early sping snow that would be any where from 6-10 inches, everyone became fearful. Afraid of an event that had not happened. I even recieved 2 phone calls from people wondering if we would have church.
If there is a command for each day to “fear not” then we should perhaps look to most things with faith and not fear. I wonder how many people will not attend church with a little dusting this morning? We’ll see but I will enjoy worship with whomever attends. Happy Palm Sunday.
