Friday 6/17

  • Read Matthew 5:11-12

A casual read through Hebrews chapter 11 will show you the many prophets and people that were persecuted and killed for the sake of the kingdom.

  • In your own life (or someone close to you), have you seen yourself be insulted or lied about because of Jesus or your faith?
  • When something has been hard in life, how have you been able to praise Jesus instead of being sullen?
  • Does praising Jesus mean that you are fake and not angry or sad? How does this work in real life?

Memorization Verse: Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
