“If you see in a province the oppression of the poor and the violation of justice and righteousness, do not be amazed at the matter, for the high official is watched by a higher, and there are yet higher ones over them.”

“They” most likely, are not… but others are.
Our family, friends, and acquaintances take note of what concerns us. They listen to our conversations. They see what we post on social media. They observe what gets us, “riled up”, and by this, they determine of what sort we are and whether or not we really possess the peace that we say that we have.
“A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.”

Or are we the Proverbs 29:11b-type?
Psst… know what I think?
I think the difference is Jesus.
