A Picture of Humility

If you do a quick internet search of the words "Christian," "Muslim," and "Egypt," you will find story upon story of persecution, specifically that of Christians. Google will suggest words such as "clash" or "tension" to assist your search.

This knowledge only makes the following photograph more beautiful:

Christians creating a protective barrier around praying Muslims in Egypt
The situation in Egypt right now is rough, to say the least. People have become desperate for change, and are willing to sacrifice to make that change a reality.

You could say that this picture portrays unity and hope for the country. But to me it reveals the humility of Christ, and how we, as Christians, are to be an example of that humility.

Bless those who persecute you. Don't curse them; pray that God will bless them.
Romans 12:14

That picture and all that it stands for is one I will likely never forget for as long as I live...

JD- I agree. Everytime I look at it I get the chills. (In a good way)
