Fearless Friday: In Which I Prattle on About No Fear

“Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more. Love more, and all good things will be yours.”

Swedish Proverb

I am not Swedish -- at least I'm pretty sure I am not. Yet the Swedes must have been pretty wise folks, because in searching for something wise to say; they are quoted frequently. No names or personal attributions, but they must have had a place to collect such nuggets of smartness. Can you imagine old Alf or Bjorn saying, "Ja, Man, you need to write that down. Someone in many, many years may be checking the internet and want to quote us."?

Anyway . . .

This quote made me chuckle, especially the eating less and chewing more. Yet, so much of what this little snippet says is true. If applied to my daily life, it would change me undoubtedly. So, I leave you with the truth of Scripture, which assuredly will change our lives:

"Do not fear little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom."
Luke 12:32

So go on and "love more . . . and all good things will be yours." He will give us the kingdom. We have no reason to fear. He promises, and He. Keeps. His. Promises.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Friday!
This is what we teach our children about fear: false evidence appearing real! It has helped them in so many situations.
