John 10:31 The Jews took up stones again to stone him.
Recently, I read a reflection by a friend writing about publicly witnessing against the power of evil in the world. My friend wrote, “I don’t do these things because of bravery. I do them because I have the privilege to do so.” Bravery is not a word I imagine Jesus would be keen on us using for his sake either. I suspect he would see fighting injustice and evil as both obligation and privilege.
MOVING FORWARD: Have you ever publicly stood up to evil or injustice? Would you do so? Why or why not?
