Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet; righteousness and peace will kiss each other. (Psalms 85:10 NRSV)
James Moore in his book titled STANDING ON THE PROMISES OR SITTING ON THE PREMISES? tells a wonderful story about Bennett Cerf, a respected publisher and author for Random House a few years ago.
One evening Cerf appeared on an NBC radio program called "Conversation." The panelists on this particular show were asked to spend the entire thirty-minute program that night discussing just one question: "What Are You Most Afraid Of?" They talked about a wide range of fears, but finally they decided on the one thing they were most afraid of: "the nuclear bomb."
After the panelists had reached that consensus, the moderator, Clifton Fadiman, noticed that Bennett Cerf hadn't said a word. When prodded, Cerf replied in a humble voice that he had hesitated to answer the question truthfully because he was afraid that his concern would seem so trivial. But he went on to admit that what he feared most was "not being loved."
We have all probably had moments when we didn't feel loved. Will you show God's love to someone today?
God of peace, help me to share the peace of love. In Jesus name, Amen.
