Saying Nothing

by Berni Dymet

1 Pet. 2:18-20 Slaves, accept the authority of your masters with all deference, not only those who are kind and gentle but also those who are harsh. For it is a credit to you if, being aware of God, you endure pain while suffering unjustly. If you endure when you are beaten for doing wrong, what credit is that? But if you endure when you do right and suffer for it, you have God's approval.

Have you ever noticed - sometimes, life just isn't fare?! We do the right thing and people misunderstand us or they run their own selfish agendas, and we end up with the raw end of the deal. Have you ever noticed that?

Truly when that happens - what I really want to do is to tear that person's head off. And believe you me, verbally - I have the capacity to do that. I became pretty good at it over the years.

And then … then I met this Jesus. The Son of God - miracle man extraordinaire! If anyone had a right to tear some people apart when they arrested Him and beat Him and spat on Him and mocked Him - well … He did.

But He said nothing - so they nailed Him to a cross. Why? Why didn't He say something? Why didn't He give them what for?!

There He was - God's Son. He'd only ever done good, and yet He said … nothing. Why?
