1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Another verse about love today. This one is about love for both God and others. As we are filled with love, we are promised we don’t have to fear whatever it is we fear. 

Lehi had threats against his life when he prophecied the destruction of Jerusalem. But rather than give in to fear, he prayed “in behalf of his people” (1 Nephi 1:5). That was done with love. And because of that, the Lord came to him and initiated the saving of Lehi’s family. He took care of Lehi because Lehi was filled with love instead of fear. 

Lehi knew this truth about the Lord: “Thou wilt not suffer those who come unto thee that they shall perish!” (1 Nephi 1:14).

If we are filled with love, we will not perish either. We don’t have cause to fear man, worldly trials, or anything going against us. Perfect love casteth out our fear. 

More love. ❤️❤️❤️
