Luke 12:32 — “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Fear is something we all have to deal with at one time or another. For some of us, fear is an ongoing struggle — we wake up with it in the morning, walk around with it all day and then go to bed with at night. In this beautiful verse, Jesus speaks to our fear. He reminds us that He is our Shepherd and that we have a Father in heaven who is warm and generous. He will happily give us the kingdom and that is reason not to be afraid of anything in this life.
