Good concept here. Yes, perfect love does cast out fear and you used several examples of how people demonstrate their need of Christ/love and how difficult it is to approach them. A few tips: try to choose one example of a person who needs the love of Christ and then show how you can demonstrate love toward him/her. Your readers will automatically assign a lost person or an irritating person they know to be in place of the one specific example you list because lost/irritating people are universal. It is just the names and faces that change. Thanks for sharing!

You have dealt with one of the most paralyzing emotions we face--one that is at the root of so many of our other dysfunctions. You have reminded me that I need to look beyond the sin, the sleaze, the rebellion, the rudeness in people and see the fear that feeds all these things. As you said, the only thing that can conquer this fear is real love--the balm for all our heart hurts! Thank you for so capably sharing these thoughts with us! :)
Wonderful advice here. Good devotional.
