“Dear Lord, my heart is be­com­ing sick with rage at the way oth­ers abuse our flag. My brother-in-law lost his life fight­ing for the free­doms that U.S. cit­i­zens are priv­i­leged to en­joy. And yet, I see all sorts of des­e­cra­tion of this sa­cred sym­bol. Isn’t anger the ap­pro­pri­ate re­sponse?”

—Paul in a let­ter to the Eph­e­sians 4:31

Wis­dom of the Word

for this?
