I’m sitting outside at Harding University, under their ancient gnarly oaks. And sitting five feet from me is a red fox squirrel, chomping on some sort of a nut.
It’s acting for all the world as if I were a rock.
Usually squirrels run from the slightest movement. Except here—where they’ve learned trust.
And Jesus wants me to learn this trust: “I will never leave you, nor abandon you!” (Hebrews 13:5)
Yes, people are afraid of shadows and the dark. We’re all afraid of the unknown, almost always.
But we don’t have to be.
