Matthew 5:10 “Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 5:10

“Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

I got nothing today.  I really don’t know how I could write anything to this one simple verse.

But I did think of a few reflective questions for you to ponder.

How do you define “doing the right thing”?

Who decides what “doing the right thing” really is?

Is “doing the right thing” subjective or objective?

Do you believe that there are absolute rights and and absolute wrongs?

If someone “attacks” you for “doing the right thing” are they doing so because they view you as not “doing the right thing” and they are.  Or, are they doing it because they are “doing the wrong thing” and don’t want to be reminded of that fact.

Since the absence of good is evil, do people try and erase the good to redefine their own evil as good?

Can a minority persecute a majority? Or can only a majority persecute a minority?

I think these are some questions to ponder leading into the next two verses that I hope to finish on in a couple of days.  As always comments are appreciated.
