If We Do What's Right We Have No Need to Fear!

Most of us are aware of the unrest in the world; global calamities, wars and rumors of war, derision among the nations, economic turmoil and unrest etc.  We may feel that we have no control over things that are going to affect us - and it may cause some unrest in ourselves.

But, the Lord has said:  Fear Not, but Believe.

This morning as I woke the words of a beloved and well-known hymn came to my mind in force and I felt prompted to share them with you.

"If we do what's right we have no need to fear,
For the Lord, our helper, will ever be near;
In the days of trial his Saints he will cheer,
And prosper the cause of truth."

Help and Care for those in need

What comforting truths! Our 'job' is to do what's right, keep the commandments, heed the counsel of the Lord and His chosen leaders, obey the promptings of the Spirit (which lead us to safety) and care for those around us and the Lord will help and bless us.
