Do you ever feel like it would just be easier to keep your mouth quiet - to not work at change - to not try to help - to not listen to those crying out in need. To just not get involved. I mean why risk feeling alone, uncomfortable, isolated, or like an outcast?
Instead - wouldn't it be so much easier to simply go along with what our leaders (both in the church and government) say or what the culture of our day dictates? Wouldn't it be easier to justify inaction by being content, enjoying the beauty that is all around, and by finding the simple joys in everyday life?
I know down in the deep parts of my heart, though, that it must be possible to do both. To both stand up for change when there is injustice, and to also be content at the very moment where God puts you - noticing the simple joys of the day.
