Fear is real. We all experience it. Fear of being judged, fear of not living up to expectations, fear of saying the wrong thing, fear of not having enough money—the list goes on and on. But God never intended for us to live in fear. “Fear not” is the most used command in the Bible because fear prevents us from experiencing the life God wants us to live. That’s why we need to pursue courage—the thing that allows us to move beyond fear. Courage precedes our “difference-making” moments.
We often think that the answer to any problem in life is more. More money. More time. More Netflix. But, as many of us have learned the hard way, there are times when getting more leads to a host of other problems we didn’t foresee. In those moments, the old saying “less is more” is true. In this series, we look at several areas of life where less really is more.
