Standing Up

I have always been taught to stand up for Godly things and my beliefs.  As mentioned in an earlier post, Chick-fil-a publicly announced that the corporate mission was based on biblical principals.  This drew Mike Huckabee asked for supporters to show appreciation for CEO Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-a."The goal is simple," Huckabee wrote on the Facebook page for the event. "Let's affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick Fil-A on Wednesday, August 1."  Chick-fil-a wouldn't report Wednesday's total earnings, however, they stated that it created record sales.
I bring this up because as Christians we often try not to offend.  We know that Christ taught us to "Love one another" John 15:17 but he also taught us that there is a set of rights and wrongs... thou shall and thou shall nots if you will.  As Christians, we must stand with those standards but do it in a loving way.  You can't show God and Christ with hate in your heart but we must stand on biblical principles.  I went to a Chick-fil-a on Wednesday to show my support of this business. 
1 Corinthians 16: 13-14 states "Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.  Let all that you do be done in love." As Christians we can make a great impact.  We just need to remember to stay united.
