“Perfect love casts out fear,” said the Apostle John. The opposite is also true – “perfect fear casts out love.” When fear is dominating our thinking or dominating the way our society works there is no room for love. The good news is that it does work the other way round – when love is the driving force there is no room for fear. Once you learn to give yourself to others as God gave himself to us, there is nothing to be afraid of any more, just a completed circle of love.
