I’ve thought a lot this morning about this whole ‘storming the embassy thing’ and how that is such an odd reaction to someone saying a bad word about your prophet. I am so reminded about how what the prophets of Baal said when Gideon challenged them to “let him take his own revenge”
But for ourselves, on a personal level, this continues to present a really odd dilemma. One that I think should be guided by the words of Paul in Romans 12 – the how to chapter.
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. (Romans 12:10 ESV)
Make sure you our outdo each other in showing honor to one another, and keep developing the relationships that are around you. It will have an impact of things that are much bigger.
