Read the Bible in a year by reading Second Timothy 3 today. You try your best to be a good person, but people criticize you. Expect more of it, because Paul said, “Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” (2Timothy 3:12). Scripture stated it. Believe it and do not be dismayed when it happens. Notice that Paul did not say that the persecution would come only from the outside. He just said that if you live godly, you will suffer persecution. Therefore, expect it from any source.
