Speaking Truth to Power


During this Easter weekend, I am reminded that speaking truth to power has its consequences but only in terms of the flesh.

Men and women who point out the faults in their leaders do so in the interest of mankind and not themselves.

It is true that people who have spoken truth to power oftentimes never saw the fruits of their labor come to fruition. In my heart of hearts, I believe that was ok with them.

Longevity was never their motivation - justice was.
