Ponder:When have you been hated by those who've misunderstood the good news you've tried to bring to light? How have God or others encouraged you onward?
Pray:Lord, given the world around me, some days it is very hard to remain a faithful Christian, and yet I want to please You, and I know it will be worth it. Please give me the grace to endure to the end.
