I Peter 3:14 ” But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed.”

Peter went on to write, ” If you suffer as a Christian, don’t be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that Name.” (I Peter 4:16)  Thus, when I look at both these verses, I see that when I stand my ground and do what’s ethically upright, I’m adhering and conforming to God’s authority, rather than the world’s…while also realizing that I don’t need to apologize or be ashamed for doing what’s right.  Suffering for the sake of Christ means the world will condemn, ridicule, and reject you…but it also means you will be blessed.
