No Defence

Mark 6:61 But he was silent and did not answer. Again the high priest questioned him,

He was standing trial for nothing that He did.  He said nothing.  He did not try to defend Himself.  How quick we are to defind ourselves.  We don’t like to be told we’re wrong.  We’ll defend most all of our words, actions or even inactions.    Quite often, when we are defending ourselves there is anger in our voice.  In college our choir director said “Sing loud enough to recognize your mistakes.”  In his wisdom he knew insecure college students would be resentful of another student correcting them.  It seems we are slow to “outgrow” our insecurity.  Our question is where is our security?  Is it in our own abilities or is it in our relationship with God through His Son Jesus?  The best responce to someone else’s correction or criticism is to thank them for their concern, take it to God in prayer and allow the Holy Spirit to bring us into His Truth.
