What Can Man Do To You?
What can man do to you?
One time, I experienced nervousness before speaking to thousands of people in a city theatre. A thought helped me stay calm: “Everyone here will one day be dead!”
Intimidated? You met a powerful, rich, famous, or high-placed man.
Afraid? Someone is suing, betraying, bad-mouthing, harming, or even threatening to kill you.
Fearing people is a dangerous trap.
“I, yes, I am the one who comforts you. Who are you, that you are so afraid of humans who will die, descendants of mere men, who have been made like grass?” - Isaiah 51:12
Have no fear of man. There’s nothing to be afraid of.
“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”
- Matthew 10:28
When we trust God, then we shall fear no man, no matter how powerful he is.
