It is very clear from Jesus that the Christian life is not an easy one. He did not promise his followers a Disney like paradise on earth where their every whim would be taken care of. He called his people to stand up for others, to be a voice for the voiceless, to fight for the widows and orphans. In doing that you become a target because people do not like to be shown they are wrong. Yet that is what Jesus called us to do.
Are you willing to stand up for someone today even if it makes your life more difficult?
