“Be True to Yourself”

Lk. 1:57-66  “Nativity of John the Baptist”

Cowardice asks the question: is it safe? Expediency asks the
question: is it politic? Vanity asks the question: is it popular?
But conscience asks the question: is it right? And there comes a
time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor
politic, nor popular – but one must take it simply because it is
right.
– Martin Luther King Jr.

An old minister once told me “There is no valor in compromise.”  John the Baptist followed that and I follow that as much as I can. It has gotten me into a hell of a lot of trouble, and cost me reputation and money at times–but you know–I feel good about myself, and I feel honest.  We are each  called by God in a special way, we are not meant to be carbon copies of someone else.  We are each to be new slivers of the Word of God made in the image of God, we are meant to spend our lives up to that. Served meal. great day. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
