While in Prison

Behind barsSome of the masterpieces in the world of literature have had its origin while in prison.  Letters from Birmingham Jail by Marthin Luther King, Don Quixote by Miguel Cervantes, Conversations with Myself by Nelson Mandela and The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan; to cite only a few.

The Apostle Paul also penned four encouraging letters while he was under house arrest in Rome; we call them “Prison Epistles”. Their message is important and invaluable to Christians today as it was then.

Some others prisoners have obtained college degrees, have learnt to skillfully played a sport, have acquired cooking expertise, have become successful singers, famous actors, etc.

My thoughts for today while most of the world is in quarantine because of COVID-19 is that isolation can be used for good depending on one sole thing: my decision.
