Ponder:Maybe the question to ask ourselves is, where do we want our reward? Are we receptive to God in our trials and suffering so we draw closer to Him?
Pray:Father, help me to live a life that embraces the Beatitudes and finds joy no matter the struggles, knowing that one day I will live in Your kingdom.
