I’m short on time this morning, but long on thought. My gut reaction to the current tumult in the world and in my country is to call for dialogue, for peace, for efforts to understand one another’s views. And I would have dashed off something to that effect if this quote by Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel hadn’t burned a hole in my conscience. We must always take a stand against oppression, no matter where it comes from, from high or low, from within our own families, or, yes, even from within our own compromised hearts.
“Who will rise up for Me against the wicked? Who will stand with Me against evildoers?” ~Psalm 94:16
