When I didn't react...

Whenever I’ve read the Bible account about Jesus walking unharmed through the crowd that had led him to the brow of a hill, intending to throw him over (see Luke 4:28, 29), I’ve always wondered how he kept safe from the crowd’s rage. Recently, I had the opportunity to glimpse, in a very small degree, how Jesus was saved from the mob and how he could forgive those who wished him ill. 

During my drive into the city each morning, I often spend time in prayer, as I have found it prepares me for the workday ahead. I usually endeavor to know that God, good, is in complete control over all of my activities, and because I am God’s idea, I have dominion to see this throughout the day.

On my way in one morning, I inadvertently found myself in the middle of an “Occupy Wall Street” demonstration. Of course, I knew that people from many walks of life have attended these demonstrations in the United States, and some have been more peaceful and productive than others.
