1 Corinthians 4:12 NASB "and we toil, working with our own hands; when we are reviled, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure;"They stood there poking fun at us and yet we continued to work! Today's verse speaks about work and while we work, we may be reviled and persecuted but we bless and endure as they insult us! As I entered the building where I was to share with the men, a group was outside protesting. They were calling those inside all kind of insults because these men chose to honor God rather than man. I couldn't help but pray for those shouting the insults, I wished somehow that they would come in with us and see what honoring God is all about, how living for Christ is the only Way, but sadly they did not. In life, we have choices, we can try to get even with those who insult us or we can pray for them, try to be like Christ to them - it all comes down to choice! If you are one of those working through the insults, keep on keeping for the cause of Christ, one day we will be rewarded beyond your wildest imaginations! peace, tom
