Scripture Sunday...

Being 'different' can be hard...
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: 
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, 
and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: 
for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Matthew 5:10-12

Sometimes doing or standing for what we believe is right 
results in hurtful responses from those we love. 
Take courage - Jesus knows this feeling and so did the prophets of old.  
Have a pure heart before the Father, stand tall, and let Him handle the rest!

A blessed Lord's Day to you ~Joyce 

Incidentally - if you want to watch something inspiring and encouraging - 
this is a beautiful testimony of a Godly Amish family...
They have since, sadly, been excommunicated for doing the film.
