Matthew 5:11-12 (NLTSE) “God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers. Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.”
Many things in life can steal our joy and without joy you won’t enjoy the feeling of happiness, but Jesus gives us this incredible perspective, what happens in life doesn’t have to control your attitude or your emotions, you through Christ are the Boss of your life and responses and we are building for eternity not for the temporary!
