“Dear Lord, yes­ter­day sev­eral of us came upon a dog locked in a swel­ter­ing car in a park­ing lot. When the owner ap­peared, we were so irate that we started yelling, and some­one even lunged at him. The cops broke it up, but we were—I was!—out of con­trol. Now I feel deeply ashamed. How do I keep my­self from get­ting swept up by a crowd again?”

Wis­dom of the Word

Sub­mit your­selves there­fore to God. Re­sist the devil, and he will flee from you. —James 4:7

We un­der­stand and yet…

We try to stand in our own truth, but we can get caught up in mob men­tal­ity. Why are we so eas­ily swept into oth­ers’ anger and neg­a­tiv­ity, and how do we re­sist?
