Stop Slinging Your Sword
“Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left.” – 2 Corinthians 6:4-7 We learned yesterday that the devil often works through people to accomplish the goal of discouraging and upsetting others. This is why it’s prudent to stop battling reactively and instead, go immediately to prayer. Today, I want to expand further upon this point by sharing the fabled legend of St. George. The tale goes that he, a venerated Roman soldier, rode into Silene (modern-day Libya) in the 3rd century to slay a terrible dragon that had a taste for humans.
