But if we stand in the doorway, unspeaking the truth of the moment, then we have become as guilty as the tyrants inside. In those moments any concept of outside matters not, because if we are unwilling to wield the purposes and strength of God inside ourselves, then we are useless to the outside, unseeing world. We have become like them, lost and confused in the dark – unseeing the future, scared of the loss of light, yet unwilling to do what we know is right. Walking in the path of righteousness is not only what we are called to do, it is absolutely what we must do on the inside, in order for anything outside to change. We, the tyrants of our lives, will yield, when the silent doorway-standers speak.
