The answer to fear of man is fear of God. The number one command in the Bible is “Fear not”, appearing more than 150 times. Rather than having unhealthy fear of man, the Bible commands us to have a healthy fear of Jesus, meaning we care more about what he says than what others say and we endure whatever we have to, knowing that he will reward us for being faithful.
