Do we shy away from people when confronted of our faith?
What do you value more: your faith or the praise of man?
Do you feel threatened when someone sees your faith as contrary to their beliefs?
What is your attitude toward that situation?
Do you get angry? Do you shy away?
Or do you find it as an opportunity to share your faith with gentleness and respect?
This passage serves as our reminder that we should be ready to defend our faith; yet it is also a good remind that we should defend our faith with gentleness and respect.
