The Perils of Panic

When the Coronavirus first became public, I was in Costco visiting with a store manager. He said, “What a day. We had a run on toilet paper!”

 “Why are people hoarding toilet paper?” I asked. “This virus doesn’t impact the stomach.” His only explanation was that panic had swept our country.

Panic means a sudden overwhelming fear, with or without cause, that produces hysterical or irrational behavior. God often used panic to help Israel defeat its enemies, including the Philistines. 

1 Samuel 14:15 says, “Then panic struck the whole army—those in the camp and field, and those in the outposts and raiding parties—and the ground shook. It was a panic sent by God.”

When making emergency plans for your business don’t overlook the possibility of people’s irrational behavior.
