A couple quick paragraphs from a recent Focus on the Family's email update:

Ambassadors of God's Love and Peace

In today's challenging world, many people are struggling with anxiety--even fear. As such, the apostle Paul's encouragement is especially timely: ''For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind'' (2 Timothy 1:7, NKJV).

As children of the God who is Love (1 John 4:8, 16), let's choose to walk in His light, love and peace and encourage those who need hope--whether they're family members, neighbors or people halfway around the world.
