Stay on Track

“Not every solution is right.”

Not every solution is right.

While Paul and Silas were evangelizing, they got into trouble and were imprisoned. Confined in a prison cell, they began to worship God. Suddenly, a violent earthquake broke the prison doors. When the prison officer saw what happened, he tried to end his life, thinking the prisoners had escaped. But Paul stopped him (Acts 16:25-36).

One interesting thing about this story is the way Paul and Silas stayed faithful to their cause. The normal thing to do after the prison doors opened was to rush out, assuming it was God’s will. Instead, they remained in the cell and gained new converts.

Always stay focused on the big picture, regardless of the opportunities in front of you.
