One definition of fear

I have often heard fear defined as false evidence appearing real. Have you ever heard this before? I think it’s a fantastic definition. How often have we assumed as truth something that wasn’t true because the evidence wasn’t real? The Bible reminds us that worry doesn’t add a single hour to our life. So we might do as the songwriter Bobby McFerrin says: “Don’t worry, be happy.”
