Sticking It to Evil
Last week’s Psalm 23 verse touched on the “Shadow of Death” – and we learned that it applies not only to our physical lives, but to relationships, careers and other aspects of our life.
The fear of evil is another aspect of the “shadow” – spiritual forces that can manipulate our minds and our actions. The modern imagination thinks of the devil as a comic figure in red tights – yet scripture consistently speaks to evil’s reality, and how it preys on our desires and our fears. How can we find comfort in this atmosphere of spiritual forces of evil?
