If you are struggling with anything today, just remember that God is aware of each of our struggles and He assures us that it’s just a sign of what we face as Christians. We will receive ridicule for our beliefs, but in the end, we will be rewarded for our loyalty. “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” -Matthew 11-12 Our purpose on Earth is to love God and tell others about Him. Matthew 5 goes on to give a refreshing and encouraging way to see our will as God has commanded: “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” -Matthew 5:14-16 We hope you have a fantastic Wednesday!
