HOW TO NOT PANIC AND TAKE HEART
Straight from the bible
As you read these, make note of everything that stands out.
I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble.
But take heart! I have overcome the world.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
The Lord has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor. Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust. For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly.
1 Peter 2:13-19
So that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
