It may not be a comfortable thought, but we are called to suffer. Called to endure injustice graciously. Called to experience ridicule, insults and threats for doing the right thing, for living according to truth from God’s Word. Called to follow Christ’s example.

When we refuse to repay evil with evil, to insult or threaten those who insult and threaten us, we live as Jesus lived. And what will God do?

So, do good regardless of the outcome ― for to this you were called.

God, I hear you calling me to endure and to do what is right, no matter what. Give me strength through your Holy Spirit. Amen.

Go Deeper ― Spend some time thinking about the truth that you were called to suffer and called to do good despite injustice. How does knowing that God called us to this and that Jesus gave us an example to follow, help you face suffering and injustice?
