Stephen Arrested While Serving                    

Acts 6:8-15 NRSV             

They stirred up the people as well as the elders and the scribes; then they suddenly confronted him, seized him, and brought him before the council. (Acts 6:12)

Some people will try to tear you down. Thank God today for God’s covering which protects you from the ill-will of others towards you.
