The world is a good place because we make it a good place.
Remember that guy who writes Stuff Christians Like? He's the same guy that wrote a book called Quitter: Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job & Your Dream Job. Now he he has another book. Instead of quitting, it's time to Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average and Do Work that Matters.
Jon Acuff asked me to make this post and I am happy to do so because he's a talented guy with a lot of good things to say. However, he's more than talk. I watched him do everything he teaches in these books over the last few years. If you will read what he has to say and work as hard as he has, you'll make things happen too.
To get started, you need to buy the book, then read it. If you still need convincing, here's a video of Jon Acuff telling you more about the book.
However, when I choose to worry about something that is an even greater threat, I become less concerned with what I once feared. Over time, I learn to fear new things and each time the fear is from a greater threat.
I must eventually get to a point where my choice is to fear God or fear man and the things associated with a fallen world. My fear of God is a measure of my belief in him.
So, to fear God is to have hope. To fear there is no God, is to live in bondage.
