a man bears up under sorrows when suffering unjustly.
For what credit is there if, when you sin and are harshly treated,
you endure it with patience?
But if when you do what is right and suffer for it you patiently endure it,
this finds favor with God.
For you have been called for this purpose,
since Christ also suffered for you,
leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps."
1 Peter 2:19-21
This is something that I have read a couple times lately, and then when in North Carolina the sermon that I heard at church was on this subject too. It makes me think.... I don't feel like I have suffered much, I don't know that we need to seek suffering but I hope and pray that I am living the life that I should as a Christian. It is my whole desire that I should follow in HIS steps.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this verse!
