Six Year Old Wisdom
Our son had a fearful night and we were talking about it the next morning. He was thinking about different scary things that could happen in the middle of the night.
Our six-year-old overheard our conversation. He looked at us with great boldness and said,
“If I am afraid, I just remember that Jesus rose from the dead, and I am not afraid anymore.”
Fear can mount as we focus on negative thoughts. I guess that’s why in the Bible it reminds us in Philippians 4:8
“WHATEVER IS TRUE, WHATEVER IS NOBLE, WHATEVER IS RIGHT, IF ANYTHING IS EXCELLENT OR PRAISEWORTHY, THINK ON THESE THINGS.”
Way to speak truth, Ryan! I love that!! What a great reminder that we have nothing to fear because we can trust the One who overcame death and the grave!! Love you all, Melissa
