Proverbs 4:23 “Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” GNB These are powerful words, read the verse again. Your life is shaped by your thoughts. What do you think about?

The verses here can be discussed in a Cell Group or Bible Study. You can view the verses here or download the tract as a PDF. Fear is a very real subject today. Millions live in fear of the future, not sure of what tomorrow may bring. The topic of fear is also a good topic for evangelism.
