“Fear not that thy life shall come to an end, but rather that it shall never have a beginning.”
Cardinal John Newman
Genesis, Chapter 19, Verse 30
Since Lot was afraid to stay in Zoar, he and his two daughters went up from Zoar and settled in the hill country, where he lived with his two daughters in a cave.
We cannot soar if we are afraid of Zoar. I have the strength to face all conditions by the power that Christ gives me. (Philippians 4:13) Our fears can, at times, be like a handicap. Fears can either immobilize us or if we are up to the challenge they can propel us to greater heights. Are we going to be like Lot afraid to Zoar or more like a Helen Keller or Tom Dempsey? Dempsey set a 43 year NFL record for the longest field goal yet he was born with no right fingers and half a right foot.
I thank God for my handicaps, for through them, I have found myself, my work, and my God. (Helen Keller)
