“But the believers who were scattered preached the Good News about Jesus wherever they went.” (Acts 8:4, NLT)
We do not get to choose our circumstances, but we do choose how we react to our circumstances.
Today’s scripture reminds us of our predecessors in the faith, who were displaced but used their new circumstance to tell others about Jesus through word and deed.
We will often find ourselves in places not of our own choosing. Will we complain about the inconvenience, the pain, or the expense; or will we view our displacement as an opportunity to let our light shine for Jesus? – Luther
