How many times do we make wrong decisions because of fear?

Joseph
and Mary are engaged. Mary is pregnant. Joseph decides to dump her.
Then the Lord appears to him in a dream and says, “Joseph, son of
David, DO NOT BE AFRAID
to take Mary home as your wife…” (Matt 1:18-21)

God dealt with the real issue that was pushing Joseph to make a bad decision – FEAR. 

How
many times do we make bad decisions because we are afraid of of what
people will think, afraid of how much it will cost, afraid we might
fail?

I don’t really do new years resolutions, but if I did, I’d resolve not to listen to fear in 2010. What about you?
