Thus, when it seems all is going crazy around us, we can be the safe place. When it seems all cool has been lost, we can be the voice of reason. When it seems things have gotten nasty, we can be the sweet spot. People will really respect us for it, because everyone doesn't have it in them to lead during chaos. Times of trouble bring out the best or the worst in people.
As people of God, being the one who looks more like Christ means things will turn out better than worse. Yes I do believe that, because I chose to come from a faithful place that no matter how things seem, when God is present, it all works out in the end. Proverbs 25:28 says, "a man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls." That's proof that we must maintain rationality and good sense even if others aren't, otherwise we will have a hot mess on our hands and who would that help?
