"For it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people"
~ 1 Peter 2:15
There is the saying "Be the change you want to see in the world".
Another way of thinking about it might be phrased as - "be the people you want to see in the world".
People may think that I am foolish for believing in Christ. For following Him.
They may think I am ignorant, or naive. Or just plain crazy.
But if I truly follow Christ and live as He would have me live - if I am kind to others, peaceful in trials, joyful in all circumstances, and filled with trust and hope in Him - surely they can't help but to see the difference He has made in my life.
If I do good and follow His will it might make others pause and think.
And maybe... just maybe... make them take a second look at their own beliefs about God. And in that reflection and exploration of their own hearts - maybe they will find Him there for themselves.
