  • The more people speak evil of me, the more I should rejoice because it means I am becoming more like Jesus. The more I see a pastor going through evil speaking the more I should know, he is building the kingdom of God.

  • Being blessed or having joy is a state of the soul and not a condition of what is going on around you.
  • In the family of God, there will always be some people who do believe in us, encourage us and build us up.
  • It is not a spiritually mature person who keeps a record of offenses, grievances and wrongs.
