Fear- Five Minute Friday on Sunday

"That's a good thing!" I heard a colleague declare years ago when I relayed to her that a student asked if I was going to tell her, his teacher, about his behavior. Fear of disappointing someone, or fear of getting in trouble, can save a whole lot of people a whole lot of heartache.

We wash our hands before we eat for fear of the germs and getting sick, do we not?

Fear can be a dreadful thing, but it is a good thing when it protects. "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." (Proverbs 9:10) Knowing there is a Creator who is loving, but also just, should instill some fear.


That was it in five minutes and I hope it challenges all of us towards a greater understanding and deeper appreciation for life and our Creator. To see what others are thinking, check out
