The Sky is Falling!

I subscribe to Seth Godin’s blog and this post arrived in my in-box last week. He touched on the prevalence in mass media to amplify fear.

With the continual hawking of impending danger and risk, watching the news on television makes me anxious.

The always-urgent, life-is-hazardous┬ácoverage presents news in a way that makes the story personal to every person listening. So even though I’m not the one experiencing the horrific event, I feel the threat lurking close by.

Worry is fear pretending to be of use. C. Winsor

I’m listening less and less to the national news, trying to be neither the oblivious ostrich or a fearful Henny Penny. It’s hard to master the balance. Especially when people are hurting and in need of prayer.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
