This isn't a devotional, but I just heard something I thought I'd share with you all. On Sunday morning on national TV, correspondent Brit Hume was asked his opinion on the Tiger Woods scandal. Mr. Hume suggested that if Tiger wanted true forgiveness and redemption that he should turn to the Christian faith.
I'm excited to see that little piece of the gospel go out into the world on national TV. Not surprisingly, Mr. Hume's remarks are being criticized as intolerant and he is getting a lot of flack for the comments.
I personally applaud him for speaking out in faith! As Christians we no longer have an open forum. The U.S. is heading toward religious persecution quickly. Are you willing to stand for Jesus, like Mr. Hume?
Matthew 5:11, 12 -- "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
