Don’t be naive. Some people will impugn your motives, others will smear your reputation just because you believe in me. Don’t be upset when they haul you before the civil authorities. Without knowing it, they’ve done you and me a favor, given you a platform for preaching the kingdom news! And don’t worry about what you’ll say or how you’ll say it. The right words will be there; the Spirit of your Father will supply the words.
Matthew 10:17-20 (MSG)
Comment: Like sheep among the wolves we are sent by Christ who protects. We are free of worry when we rely on God rather than our own abilities. When we speak for Him we trust in His Spirit of wisdom.
