It’s more than a little ironic. Most of the world has been forced into submission with the threat of an invisible, tiny virus. And the irony is, it illustrates how much fear is contagious. Way more than the virus could ever be.
And you can bet evil men are glad fear is contagious.
Because they know power and control are almost effortless with fearful masses. But maybe I’m just a conspiracy nut. Maybe the outspoken billionaires who think we evolved from slime, and who think there are too many humans, are right. Yeah, maybe they care more about you than me. And maybe their compassion for human life far surpasses mine.
Sure. And maybe pigs will fly and hell will freeze over.
If Jesus had no influence over me, I wouldn’t write about faith, hope, and love every day. And I certainly wouldn’t care if you die and go to Heaven or hell. It just wouldn’t be in me. And it wouldn’t matter. Because, well, if matter’s all there is, then nothing matters.
But Jesus DOES have influence over me. And I write every day in an attempt to let His love for you flow through me. So, I share words and music. And I talk about current events. And I do my best to tie it all together with Biblical principles.
So, the fear I wish was more contagious is the fear of the Lord. Because that’s the beginning of wisdom. And wisdom is the principal thing. With wisdom you could receive honor and a crown of glory. But neither of those is the principal reason to get wisdom. Your Creator is.
Because He will help you understand the ways and wiles of evil men.
And I certainly don’t wanna be called sexist. So, yes, there are plenty of evil women, too.
So, be on guard against loud voices who hate God. Because they hate you, too. And they couldn’t care less if you live or die. And so their policies cause way more death and suffering than any tiny virus ever could. Because…fear is contagious.
And your only inoculation or vaccination is a personal relationship with Jesus.
He is the medicine, the cure,
The booster shot that’s sure
To last you all of the days
Of this Earthly life phase.
