One Line from Solzhenitsyn

“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver,” is a way Scripture explains imparting biblical wisdom.

Today I got a text from a brother in the Christian worldview, a brother in ministry. He texted me this gem from the Christian martyr Alexander Solzhenitsyn: “To stand up for truth is nothing. For truth, you must sit in jail.”

If you take some time to read Solzhenitsyn, think about what he wrote, said, and lived out–and look what it cost him–it may inform the way you interpret and address the melee and subversion we are enduring in our days (or is it daze?).
