No Hand Wringing, Please!
If God is sovereign and in complete control of all people, places, and things, then hysteria by professing believers does not glorify Him. Today’s reading (Psalm 8:1-15:5) reinforces this point. Gloom and doom sells newspapers and raises money for causes, but it does not reflect confidence in Almighty God.
Beware of falling in step with the world which does not know Him or believe in Him.
