Paul and Silas were unjustly accused, unfairly judged, stripped, beaten, and detained, but they sang praises to God. They didn’t know at the time what God was going to do or when He might do it, but regardless, they worshiped Him. Their actions help us know how we can respond in faith when things go from bad to worse.
