“So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:26-31
Some of us are in the grip of confusion, fear, and loneliness. But then we hear a whisper in the dark, “Do not fear. I am with you. I am for you. Proclaim the truth, through your words, your art, your work, your relationships."
Ponder: What (or who) kills your soul? Do you believe you are of value to God? Will you place your fear (awe, respect, reverence) in the right place and person?
Praise: You are of great worth to God the Father. He knows every detail about you and cares for you.

We were stirred by Jonathan's discussion of territories vs. hierarchies as it relates to artists and writers. As a writer himself, he encourages creators to push past the tendency to compare and tend to their own journeys as creators.
