When Lily went to school and told all of her friends about Jesus, and how much He meant to her, her friends began to tease her. They starting picking on her and called her names. She had always been popular before she’d shared her faith, and she didn’t understand what was going on now. Why would all of the kids in her class dislike her because of her love for Jesus? When Lily asked her mom about this when she got home from school, her mom told her that sometimes people disliked you because you loved Jesus, and that there were even some verses in the Bible about that. Her mom told her that even though it was hard that everyone was teasing her in school, that she would get a great reward in Heaven one day because of her faith.
Have you ever dealt with something like Lily has? Have people teased you because of the things that you believe? If so, you can take comfort in the fact that others have gone through the same thing before you. And, that in the end, you will be saved. You will have life in Heaven one day, where there will be no more teasing or hurt.
“And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” (Mark 13:13)
