I love this piece. It speaks to the question of boycotting in righteous indignation vs. being the hands and feet of Christ. There is a place for both, but prayer for discernment and wisdom should take place before action.

I recently had to make a chose about how I would handle a neighborhood annoying issue. I first made a decision to take action and after I did I did not feel peace or God’s pleasure. The issue reappeared and this time I moved forward with a quiet spirit, but still addressing the problem with the appropriate people. Still waiting for resolution, but at peace that my spirit was not rebelling about my “rights”!

Thanks for a wonderful thought provoking story.

I love the way you turn this story around from people being up in arms about a boycott to making prayer a top priority. This really spoke to me.

This is partially based on a true story. I was in college there at that time.

Delighted to find out this is based on a true incident.
What a great story, wonderfully written, showing clearly how the Spirit works in the hearts of those who love God. The grumbling was a natural occurrence, and the prayer for forgiveness a supernatural one!
