“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. ...” Ecclesiastes 3:1-2
It’s best to live by faith and not fear. When it’s our time, it’s our time. Living in fear will not protect us from death. This is the reality of life, and staying shut in and not living life (although we should use common sense and practice reasonable safety measures) does not mean you will escape it.
Although COVID-19 is real, the overreaction and hysteria caused by the media and some politicians have caused a great deal of harm—mentally, educationally, financially, etc.
Finally, we must be careful in being willing to give up our rights for a sense of safety. We are very blessed in the U.S. to have the freedom and liberties that we have. They must never be forgotten or ignored.
