How do you suppose a Christian is “supposed” to act? …
Now, consider this story …
The Christian apostles act differently than anyone can imagine. Rather than escape from prison, they stay and talk about God’s love with the jailer who comes to believe. The jailer tends to the apostles’ wounds, and they baptize him and his family. In everyday living, we can show love that liberates. There is no need for a great fuss.
Ponder this … When have you experienced the love of God in the midst of everyday living? Be on the lookout this week for more opportunities to experience God’s love!
may we not hold silence
but speak out.
May we find in our throats
the words of compassion and peace
for those whose voices
have been taken away.
May we be a community
that lives the story
of those the world has silenced,
for this is your story
of justice and resurrection.
