1 Corinthians 4:12 NASB "and we labor, working with our own hands; when we are verbally abused, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it;"It wasn't easy but we endured! Today's verse shares about how we should labor despite being abused and persecuted! Be sure to read it for it teaches us to bless and endure it! I am not sure why they didn't want us to put the fire out but that's what we were called to do, so we did it! While working at a house fire, some men came and began to yell at us for trying to put out the fire. They were yelling some pretty harsh words, and even tried to stop our crew from entering the building. Not knowing why they did so, we continued to do the job we were called to do! In life, there will be those who abuse us and persecute us as we stand for godly manhood. The key is how we react to them. We have choice to either give up or get stronger in Him and bless those by how we react! I pray that we lock shields and stand up for godly manhood no matter what we face, maybe thats why Jesus said to pray for our enemies! Just sayin' peace, tom
