Once his fright was past, Reuben grew quiet. And thoughtful.
By this morning he was the old Reuben. Until he went out to check again. He rushed back in to exclaim that Moglen was still out there. Not in the same spot as before. But there. Watching and waiting as before.
It took both Elijah and me to settle him down. We were not dealing with fear this time, the more he thought about the situation the more enraged he became.
He wanted to go out and eliminate Moglen.
Elijah made the breakthrough by explaining we were not dealing with what can be seen but rather with what we can’t.
And most importantly- our rage can never bring God’s justice.
