The House of Representatives, on Tuesday, rejected a Republican resolution to censure Democratic congresswoman Maxine Waters for urging protestors "to get more confrontational" if former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was acquitted of the murder of George Floyd.
Charles Stanley once said, “We are either in the process of resisting God’s truth or in the process of being shaped and molded by his truth.” A quick glance at our culture reveals which path most people have chosen, and the results speak for themselves.
In the next several days, a jury will determine if former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is guilty of murder. What they decide will reverberate across the nation and around the world in a way that may shape much of the discourse on issues of race, police conduct, and justice for quite some time. In light of those potential repercussions, today I’d like for us to focus on how we can best pray for those on the jury, the crowds gathered in anticipation of their verdict, and for our fellow believers to respond in accordance with God’s sense of justice rather than our own.
