Verse of the Day:
The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe. - Proverbs 29:25
Thought for the Day:
If you’re back at school, you know how easy it is to begin to fear people. Not that you’re scared of them, but rather you look for the approval of others. When your friends and teachers approve of what you do, it’s easy to feel better about yourself.
Let’s take a look at what the Bible says about fearing other people in today’s verse.
Fearing people is a trap. But it’s easy to fall into. Perhaps you know from going to church and reading your Bible that something is wrong, but when all your friends are around you do it anyway. You’d rather let God down than have your friends not like you.
This Bible verse calls that kind of thinking a dangerous trap. It’s dangerous because when you get so consumed with what others think that you do things that don’t please God you’re headed down a bad path.
Make the decision to follow after God. When you choose to follow after God you’ll always have safety and be happier.
