Luke 11: 47-54
All too often it’s easier to go along with the crowd. Striking out on one’s own for the sake of the Truth requires courage and hope. If my conscience is well informed and clear, then nothing can harm me; I have Truth on my side. This may not always be popular, but it’s always worth it.
Gracious and loving God, help me to know what is right and to do it. May your Spirit give me courage and inspire me to hope. Being right matters more than being popular.
