Just a reminder to myself and all of us; that chronic fear is a sin - because it means that we are failing to trust in God.
Yet of course it is a sin to which most Christians are prone - and sometimes we react to realistic pessimism about the future with fear.
And there are many grounds for realistic pessimism about the future in 2020.
But when it does we should not excuse or defend our fear; but should repent it.
And we should not try to allay fear by trying to convicne ourselves that 'it won't happen'; but by reminding ourselves to trust in God.
And by recalling that this trust is solidly rational; because God is the creator, thus has an influences on every current and all possible future scenarios; and further because the creator loves us, individually, as his children.
