To be persecuted often means to be imprisoned or tortured for your beliefs, but not always.
Those who are harassed, teased, oppressed, or ill-treated in some way
because they are faithful and true to what they believe are being persecuted.
Those who stand firm and resolute in their beliefs without looking for vengeance or reprisal
make known to their persecutors that they have a higher calling.
They are children of God and the kingdom of heaven is theirs to claim.
Have you experienced persecution?
How do you respond when mistreated because of your faith?
Blessings this day of grace,
