One of the big questions before us is how are we going to live our lives in light of the Paris Terrorist attacks and the future threats ISIS has made towards all people of good will. Will we choose the path of fear and anger? I think so many people are tired of being afraid. Or will we choose the path of love and hope?
A wise man named John, who was the youngest disciple of Jesus said, “Fear has torments, but perfect love casts out all fear.” The Apostle Paul said, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.” These are wise words for terrible realities of our times.
Antoine Leiris, the father of a 17 month year old son, lost his lovely wife in the Paris terrorist attacks. In this short BBC video he tells ISIS how he feels about the death of his wife and how he will live his life as he moves forward. This is a powerful story. I hope it encourages you.
