Good Words for Today: January 5

post date: January 5, 2017
"Take your share of suffering as a good soldier of Jesus Christ" (2 Timothy 2:3).
Sometimes I talk with believers who complain about the difficulty of being a Christian in a secular environment. And sometimes they relate stories of how they suffer ridicule and humiliation because of their faith. Certainly I do not doubt the truth of what they say. But at some point we have to say to each other:
Stop complaining.
Stop playing the victim card.
Stop talking about how hard you have it.
Working in a high-rise office building isn’t like working at a church camp. So be it. We have to face the fact that not everyone shares our faith, and then we have to go on from there. You can live for Christ on the job, in your office, in your classroom, or in your neighborhood. There is always a way to compromise for those who want to compromise. And there is always a way to obey God for those who want to obey God.
