Acts 16:22-34, Ps 138, John 16:5-11

Nelson Mandela

The story of Paul and Silas reminds me of the witness of Nelson Mandela. Despite being imprisoned unjustly their response was prayer, love, concern for their jailers and a commitment to stick to their personal missions.

When trapped or threatened and getting ready to fight, flee or freeze ask God for the grace of magnanimous love instead.
