My son, Michael, had a new experience today. He went into the post office to mail a package for me. It's a gift for my eldest son; so, we decorated the package with some stickers. Some of the stickers had a Christian theme. The clerk at the window told him that the package might be offensive to the mail carrier. Michael calmly told her that it was too bad, it had to be sent anyway.
Imagine that! Telling a ten year old that! I was proud of him for standing his ground. We talked about it afterward. I told him that he needs to remember to be respectful but firm when confronted about his faith. It's very mild persecution, it's true. What have we come to that a child would be treated thusly by a federal employee?
Still, I rejoice that Michael's faith is in the Lord Jesus Christ. I say praise God!
May I suggest?
