Matt 5:10 "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Jesus says your blessed when you are persecuted for righteousness sake. He knows all to well what this world will throw at you for standing up for Gods righteous word. I think of our courageous brothers and sisters, who took God at His word, in that ALL men are created equal, and stood up against racial injustices. The feeling as if you are a second rate human or you dont belong, is what this world will do to us. All of us who take courage, and stand up for righteousness, or better yet, the things of God, will suffer persecution. Yet, Jesus promises us the kingdom of heaven. Our home address is heaven. This is not our home. Its time to forward our mail to heaven. Lol. These trials we experience here, are temporary and we only need to send them up to Jesus. We belong to a greater kingdom than this world has ever known.
