Here in the United States, we don't have the kind of persecution that many Christians throughout the world face; we won't be arrested, beaten, or killed for our beliefs. Yet, many of us remain quiet about our Savior. Why? Some of it may be because we don't want people to look down on us. We have become afraid of what they will say or how they will look at us.
One Thing: I am going to take these verses from Ezekiel to heart and remember that only God's words and thoughts matter. Today, I resolve to remain unaffected by people's tones, remarks, and looks.
