Be Alert!

Alertness is a quality which is very much needed in these times, but to be alert does not necessarily mean to be apprehensive. Indeed, apprehensiveness invites rather than forestalls danger; for as Job said, "The thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me." Even those who are not acquainted with the book of Job may be aware of the fact that, in belief, fear brings into human experience many discordant conditions, including disease and disaster.

When there is threatened disaster to individuals, groups, or nations, there are often those who add to the danger by circulation of baseless rumors which tend to create fear. Therefore, it is well in such times not to be unduly swayed by reports which, when investigated, will be found to be without basis in fact.
