God will bless you when people insult you, mistreat you & tell all kinds of evil lies about you because of me’ ‘Mat 5:12 Be happy & excited! You will have a great reward in heaven. People did these same things to the prophets who lived long ago’
GNT – In every part of our lives we will be persecuted because we speak about and follow Jesus. If you did ditches or sit behind a desk, if you walk the halls of power or just walk the streets, open your mouth and speak the name Jesus, people will think your socially & politically incorrect, crazy & unreliable; but be happy, don’t worry your reward waits for you in Heaven.
