Have No Concern For Yourself

Posted by Wes Schaeffer | November 17, 2021

From today’s reading...

Indeed she encouraged each of them in their ancestral tongue; filled with noble conviction, she reinforced her womanly argument with manly courage, saying to them, ‘I do not know how you appeared in my womb; it was not I who endowed you with breath and life, I had not the shaping of your every part. And hence, the Creator of the world, who made everyone and ordained the origin of all things, will in his mercy give you back breath and life, since for the sake of his laws you have no concern for yourselves.’” 2 Maccabees 7:21-23

This woman watched all seven of her sons tortured and executed before her very eyes, yet she not only stood strong in her faith but also encouraged her sons to do the same because she raised them to know and love the Lord and trust in His ways.

This happened in 1940 Germany.

It happened across the Soviet Union for decades.

It is happening now in North Korea.

It is beginning to happen now in America.

The fact that you can’t see the similarities means the devil is winning.

Open your heart and stand your ground against tyrannical manipulators who offer you free food and treats and access to places they took from you if you’ll only do what they say today with no promises for what they’ll demand tomorrow because it’s the only way to...

Stay the course.
Keep the faith.
Endure.

Now go sell something.
