Really, fear is selfishness. We are concerned too much about what others think of us – how am I doing? Will I fit in? Will they laugh at me? Will others see my failure and take pleasure in it?
Both fear and faith beget within us responses of both fear and faith. Faith, particularly faith in God, can bring the healing and wholeness we seek.
