The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.    Proverbs 29:25

******************************

What would you do for fear?  Most people would do anything out of fear.  Prisoners of war have betrayed their countries for fear of more suffering at the hands of their captors.  We will lie and cheat for fear of failing at our job, for fear of being fired.  We even deny Jesus as our Savior for fear of the social cost or even the employment cost.  But remember Jesus’ words:

Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.    Matthew 10:32-34.

If anyone will protect us, if anyone will care for us eternity, it is the Father in heaven!

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!    Matthew 23:37

Fearing men will lead us into Satan’s snare of disobedience and destruction.  Trusting the Lord?  That is where true safety lies.
