We are reminded (I Peter 3:17-18) that we may suffer for doing what is right. Many people of the world may turn their backs on God's principles. The world may persecute us for holding onto God's principles. However, even though we may suffer now for doing what is right, God has not abandoned us. God has sent His Son to redeem us. Through belief in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we can be reassured that our suffering now will turn to the greatest glory in the arms of God!
We may suffer now for doing what is right, but God will reward us!
Thank You for loving me and for Your redemptive plan for my life. Help me to hold tight to what is right, even if the face of suffering, and allow me to experience Your eternal glory. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
