1 Peter 4:16
"Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name." ESV
Suffering is a human reality that no one escapes in this life. Most of the time we suffer because we've done something we shouldn't have done or we get caught in the crossfire of natural consequences. But how often has any of us suffered because we are Christians? If we suffer for that, we can rejoice and praise Him. He will honor us and bless us when we suffer for Him.
Lord, forgive us when we complain for suffering when it is our own doing or we are experiencing being a part of this world. When we suffer for being Your children, help us to rejoice and give You praise. In Your name we pray, Amen.
