I just finished reading Dr. David Jeremiah’s book (Kindle version), What are You Afraid Of?
This bumper-sticker idea came to me:
“If you do not fear God, sovereign creator of all, then it makes no sense to fear anything else.
If you do fear God, sovereign creator of all, then there’s no need to fear anything else.”
I don’t fear being dead, a topic Dr. Jeremiah covers.
I fear dying. Die + ing. The process of becoming dead. (OK, smarty pants, I know we all start dying the day we are born. I’m talking about painful, incapacitating, lonely dying. Or painful, incapacitating, lonely anything.)
Don’t we all pray that we and those we love pop our clogs suddenly, without warning, quietly in our sleep?
