Conquer Fear With Fear
To this day I am impressed by an experiment I once saw. A mean-looking cat underwent a procedure that produced fear. Then, a little mouse was released, and the large cat recoiled in terror and fright! A mouse poses such a small threat to a cat that it is absurd to think of a cat being frightened by it. However, as Christians, we often act in a similar irrational way when we allow ourselves to fear the wrong thing. Thus, we are commanded:
“Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).
