Dealing with Fear

“The core analysis of Jesus is that man is a child of God, the God of life that sustains all of  nature and guarantees all the intricacies of the life-process itself. This idea – that God is mindful of the individual – is of tremendous import in dealing with fear as a disease. A man’s conviction that he is God’s child automatically tends to shift the basis of his relationship with all his fellows.” – Howard Thurman
