Last week I was working late at the church and had my truck parked just outside the door. I finished my work and stepped outside to a familiar, yet unwanted odor – a skunk. I immediately looked around and slowly sidestepped my truck and went toward the road. I didn’t see the skunk and wasn’t sure if it was around the corne or perhaps, under my truck. From a safe distance, I used my remote to turn on the truck and scare away the intruder avoiding a rancid result.
The smell of a skunk elicits fear and causes one to be much more cautious in their steps. In our last article I mentioned how fear can be a hindrance to our faith causing us to avoid fully serving God. This week let’s look at the other side of fear, how it can actually help our faith.
