We live in a world of conflict. Many times, our actions, which are motivated by God, can cause a reaction. It could even be violent. We may strike a cord in others.
Are we willing to proceed, even if we must die?
Jesus is clear about how to proceed. We must follow God.
We who engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive. ~~Martin Luther King, Jr.
