Righteousness, in the Christian life, may be defined as:
living according to Divine law; or a moral ethic of life which
comes from the Bible.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness'
sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
LIGHT from the WORD.
"Persecuted for righteousness" is an event or multiple events
which WILL happen to all who follow Christ determinedly!
Peter said, the person who REALLY loves life will hate evil!
When a person lives according to the code of ethics defined
by Christ, and in the Bible, he/she will certainly be
scorned and mocked.
But listen to what Jesus says about that: "BLESSED are they!!"
How can one be blissfully happy while being mocked and scorned?
Because he/she is living to please GOD and not people!
Christian, STAND UP, and STAND OUT for righteousness!
And, when people mock and scorn, remember:
You're here to please GOD and not people!
