Firmes y valientes en la lid

Did you watch the devotional last night? If you missed out, then here it is:

It's easy to get caught up in everything. What are we to do with Libya? And Wisconsin? Did you hear about the girl in West Wendover? We have to get out of debt sometime soon. And they really might cut funding to NPR. And the end of the semester is in 5 weeks. And there is not enough time for everything and not enough determination to use that time wisely. 

But, in a round about way, we already have the means to address what troubles our heart.  If the solution to the world's problems is the gospel of Jesus Christ; then shouldn't that be what we are focused on? Shouldn't we be sharing it? Sometimes chances to talk about the things we believe will spring up naturally. Most of the time, they probably won't, and we'll have to take the initiative. Either way, we need to be prepared for when that chance does come. We have to be brave about it. It's funny how we are all kind of afraid of each other. We really shouldn't be. There are so many people that are trying to follow Christ, like these kids. We are more alike than we are different. We chose to come here. That makes us all allies, even if it doesn't seem like it at times.
