Psalm 145:10-13,21
John 14:27-31

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid"

Recently, I have seen a lot of people become upset and afraid over "End Times" discussions. Some people actually become obsessed, completely losing perspective, and focus of their faith. People become consumed with thoughts of tribulations and speculation on when this or that sign, warning, or miracle will appear or take place. Some stockpile food, etc.

It is important that we take Jesus' advice and concentrate on our relationship with God. We must not let ourselves become distracted in our quest to grow closer to God each day, and work to fulfill His Divine Will. That is, in essence, the key to our salvation, and everlasting life. When we follow Christ with all our hearts, we have nothing to fear.

As we see all that goes on in the world around us, let's be strong in our faith and trust in God. For no matter what happens, we can always count on Jesus to take care of us and protect us.
