Jeremiah 17:7–8 (NIV)
7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. 8 They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” When I go to the store, I see the fear in people . There is a different attitude of the people in general . I had one older gentle men push his way to a self check ,. He was moving faster than Flash Gordon to get out of there . Maybe he had water on the stove and it was boiling . But you could tell the joy of life was missing from his demeanor . in genera fear seems king and life is no longer whimsical or seem joyful . But that's not true of all . Like the quoted verse above in Jeremiah ,those who trust in the Lord know, regardless of what happens to us here , there is more to life than what we live here. Our days are in Gods hands and in him is our true life . Righteous intellect and trust in Jesus Christ is the best spiritual hygiene you can practice.It starts by trusting God and reading his word .God is then able to water the tree that only he can plant in his garden . May you grow in Gods word this day and be watered by Him alone and not the fear of the worlds virus Blessing , and have no fear God is with you Pastor Hoffman
