I find it interesting that dealing with Jesus and Paul both men who were responsibe for their release or death couldn't find anything wrong with them, yet they gave into what the people wanted, not wanting the people to be upset with them. How often do I do this? Do I care what others think of me? Do what others think of me guide my decisions? Unfortunately, more often than I'd like to admit the answer to this question is yes. God, Heavenly Father, please forgive me. Please fill me with your Holy Spirit to be strong in Christ to not only do and say what you'd have me to, but to know without question what you want me to say and do. Praise your Holy name!
