“Wisdom is justified by her deeds.”
— Jesus (Matthew 11:19)
It’s easy to compartmentalize threats from far away. Like gun violence or terrorists. It’s easy, even natural, to prescribe, condemn, and reprimand.
But…it’s a lot harder to know what to do in the middle of a stickup.
In the same way, it’s easy to put God first when the morning is still quiet, when no one is yelling or demanding, and when, well, all is good.
But…it’s much harder when we’re in the middle of a day’s temptations.
Though, it’s in those times we understand our faith and what we really look like.
The good news is, it’s also during those times that God builds us into who he wants us to be.
