Proverbs 29:25 NLT Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety.

There’s a fear that’s not mentioned much. That’s the fear of people. Fearing people because they think differently than us, fearing people because they look different from us, and fearing people’s opinions.

All this fear is detrimental because we’ll have to deal with people for the rest of our lives. The answer to this fear is putting our trust in God.

When we focus on God, we won’t get distracted by what other people are doing or saying. We’ll be so focused on what He tells us to do until we won’t have time to consider what people are doing and saying.

Don’t let fear rob you of your peace, joy, and freedom. Trust in the Lord and don’t look elsewhere.
