Being in the Minority

            Being in the minority may not be that bad of a thing. I was reminded several years ago by a fellow’s bulletin article of some famous people who were in the minority:
            Noah (not many joined him on the ark)
            Joseph (only God-fearer I know of during his early years in Egypt)
            Gideon (God sent the majority home)
            David (against Goliath, he was on his own)
            Elijah (took on the 450 prophets of Baal—and the crowd)
            Jesus (on the cross, few stood by him)
            Reading Hebrews, I have been struck by how the minority group of Christians wants to leave the church to join the majority. Bad idea!
            The question is never numbers; it is always names. If we are standing on God’s side, numbers never matter.
