In class, a teacher asked his students, “What is it that they were most afraid of?”
After a brief and intense silence, a child answered, somewhat frightened, “I fear the dark.” Another said, “I fear spiders.” [Some said] they feared death, some heights, and a fear of being forgotten by their parents after school ...
Finally, a girl said, with a look of fear, “I have much fear of evil, which is a very dangerous monster.”
There is no need to reflect even a bit to understand this fear was created by her imagination. Ignorance in all times has been largely responsible for terror of unknown fears.
But, how can we be afraid of the unknown?
This happens precisely because the monsters created by the imagination are generally more terrible than what is real.
The fear of death is an example of that. The fear of hell also has its hostages. People are afraid of the future, and so on ...
While reason can throw light on these issues; fear will continue to torment and hurt individuals causing it to make them a hostage of their own ignorance.
Jesus said, knowing the truth will set us free!
Knowledge can generate invaluable faith in our lives.
It is important to lighten the darken paths of ignorance with the light of knowledge…
Think about this, and search with a firm will, to learn the laws governing life!
Only then, will we be truly free from all the fears that make us suffer.
