Scripture Memory

Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

1 John 2:15-16 (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.
