Few of us will ever be faced with a life-threatening decision; yet in a way, we are placed in this position every day. God places us in locations and situations that may seem like nowhere and tells us that we are now here.
I remember listening to a friend tell a joke that had racist implications. When I pointed it out, I didn’t lose my life, but I did lose a friend. Still, there are many times when I don’t say anything, or when I ignore the suffering of another—just because I feel powerless or I don’t want to risk my own comfort.
God places us in situations that might seem like nowhere and says that we are now here—for such atime as this.
