Scripture Memory

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:58 (NASB)

Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.

Matthew 5:5 (NASB)

Reflection

God’s going to bless anybody who’s persecuted because they live for him. Notice that you don’t get rewarded for being rude or obnoxious. If you live a self-righteous life when you get persecuted, you’re not a martyr. You’re just a jerk. You don’t get rewarded for that. You get rewarded for being like Jesus.
