I found it interesting that the new king over Egypt instilled fear in the people to get them to do his bidding (Exodus 1:10.)
Isn’t that just what the enemy still does today? Fear is one of his most used tactics. Fear causes division. It creates an us vs. them mentality. It causes isolation, anxiety and “dread” (Exodus 1:12.)
I am so grateful that the perfect love we have in Jesus casts out fear (1 John 4:18) and calls us to love and not fear our neighbor.
