Persecution

It's interesting to note that Paul fled persecution in Acts 14:20-21. The Orthodox Study Bible commentary on this verse says, "Leaving town in the face of persecution shows wisdom, not lack of faith (Mt 10:23)."

I think of this in connection with so many Christians who have fled Iraq. While terrible to have to leave your homeland, it seems like a wise policy.
