Be a Fool for Christ

Today's reading, Acts 5: 27-33, shows us the Apostles witnessing in the Temple to Jesus Christ, before the High Priest and elders after having been released miraculously from prison. They had been put into prison by the order of the same people before whom they are now bearing witness, loudly and passionately.

And today's Reflection in Bible Alive talks about their being "fools for Christ", that they were ready to endure ridicule for their devotion to Christ and for their telling about him out loud, in public. As I was reading the passage I was struck by the fact of their speaking out publicly about Christ. I find it difficult to do so, but this reading gives me a greater urge to do so . . .
