Chaplain’s Message:

“God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.” (Matthew 5:10 NLT)

Have you ever made a choice to do what you believed to be the right thing, only to be made fun of for your choice? Have you ever been faced with doing the right thing even though you knew it would cost you (money, time, reputation, etc.)? Have you ever been discriminated against for being a follower of Jesus? Our focus verse for March can give us encouragement that even though things may seem really difficult at times, we can have hope that God will bless us as we follow Him, in spite of the persecution that we may face.
