July 8, 2021--Doing the Right Thing
Doing the right thing
won’t always win you friends and influence.
Sometimes it results in being judged,
ostracized, beaten, imprisoned, or worse.
Jesus did the right thing and he was crucified.
But the story of the crucifixion
is not the story of God’s punishment of us.
It is the story of our punishment of each other
and the attempt of our ego to kill the Spirit within us.
That attempt must necessarily be unsuccessful.
You can kill the body, but you cannot kill the Spirit.
In the end, right outlives might.
The voice of truth is heard as soon as fear subsides.
