Fear is not justified in any form.
Fear is a trick, a sleight of hand, having us believe other than what truth is. Lately, Rev. Paul has been watching the TV show, Penn & Teller: Fool Us. He loves magic and magicians, and he was an amateur magician in his youth. Recently, we bought tickets for The Illusionists Broadway show coming to Madison at Thanksgiving. Front row seats even, and he is so very excited. But we needn’t have a front row seat to the ego and its trickery now do we? As exciting as the illusion is around us, it is still illusion. The ego pulls the wool over our eyes in an attempt to deceive us that this world is what we ultimately desire. Yet the ego’s world is full of fear.
God’s world is something different altogether. It doesn’t need smoke and mirrors to attract our attention. What is True Light needs no introduction or bait. We only need to believe and accept that we are the Sons of God. What He created can never be less than miraculous with His Love.
