Kids today have grown up in a scary world. Terrorism, environmental struggle, health crises. Today’s world runs on fear.
In times of fear, it’s natural to resort to a scarcity mindset. We default to self-preservation, rather than trusting in God’s abundance. Hear this: there is a time and place for preparing well.
