The first mention of fear in the bible comes right after the flood, where God causes the animals to fear humans, mostly because we’re going to eat them. Scientists today are baffled as to why animals, even the ones who can eat us, are afraid. It’s part of God’s created re-order following the flood. What God *didn’t* create was fear in us. So… where does that come from? More on that tomorrow.
Fredrick Buechner said “Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.”
But how? Especially with snakes falling from the sky?
When I'm not blogging, I'm hanging out with my family, pastoring a church, or listening to vinyl. I think and write about Jesus, music, communication, organizational leadership, family whatnot, and cultural artifacts from the 1980's -- mostly vintage boomboxes. You can read my blog at www.radamdavidson.com, watch [RadCast], a daily 3 minute video devotional, or find me on socials (@radamdavidson).
I also help Pastors in their preaching and public speaking (www.CoachMyPreaching.com).
