You can imprison a man, but not an idea. You can exile a man, but not an idea. You can kill a man, but not an idea. (Benazir Bhutto, former prime minister of Pakistan)

These are significant words from a political leader who was later assassinated. Her ideas of democracy and fairness no doubt inspired many who heard those words and then saw the cost of standing for one’s beliefs. Bhutto felt her efforts “gave ordinary people peace, security, dignity, and opportunity to progress.” Stand firm for ideas you know to be true.

Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist (Ephesians 6:14).
