At school today I overheard some people behind me talking. They were basically making fun of prayer. They were reading an article online saying how these people somewhere refused medical treatment for their child, and instead turned to prayer. They could not believe this and said that they thought these people should go to jail.
Now I don’t know that I would refuse all medical treatment (I believe medicinal knowledge is a gift from God), but I got the impression that these guys were insulting prayer (I could be wrong, but that’s how I took it). I was not working with them, I was just in the same room, but honestly I still took offense. I prayed about it, and prayed for them, and did not say a word.
Did I sin by not speaking up? Or did I do what Jesus said to do when someone insults you? (This was not a direct personal insult, but I still took offense, so I’m not sure if that Bible verse applies in this situation).
Thank you and God bless
