My Rights Versus God's Rights

How often do we allow people to blaspheme God by their words, deeds, or actions and silently think, "well its not my business." But when we are personally offended by something we demand that our rights be vindicated. The Scottish Covenanter, James Renwick had a favorite saying that puts all of this life into perspective:

Let us be lions in God's cause and lambs in our own. -James Renwick

Excellent advice. Of course, we also need to seek the wisdom to discern the two. That's where things get a bit hairy, I find.
