There’s nothing to fear but fear

Fred Culbertson is the creator of a website called Phobialist.com, which lists more than five hundred fears that people experience. Among the unusual fears he lists are: Peladophobia – fear of bald people; eniophobia – fear of chins; Aulophobia – fear of flutes; Entheraphobia – fear of mothers-in-law; Pteronophobia – fear of being tickled by feathers; and, best of all, paraskavedekatriaphobia – fear of Friday the 13th.
Well, in a world where people face so many fears, both real and imagined, it’s comforting to know that the most frequent command in the Bible is “fear not.” But for many of us that’s easier said than done. It only happens as we learn to entrust our lives by faith into the care and keeping of God. “Cast all your care on Him,” the Bible says. “For He cares for you.”
