With Romans 12.17 as the main text today, Ed’s devotional looks at Christians’ behavior before the world. He wrote, “Being aware of public scrutiny is not bowing to public opinion.” Saints live for God’s approval, in order to influence people in the world. They live powerful lives and speak powerful words, for the conversion of many.
