I told you to rejoice and be exceedingly glad when you were persecuted for the sake of my name. Have you ever suffered persecution for this reason? Did you rejoice? What about other ways in which you suffer? For not all suffering is due to persecution, and everyone suffers in some way. How do you react to this? If you follow the commandment to give thanks and rejoice in all things it would include this too. How quickly does your spiritual growth proceed when you are comfortable and at ease? Disturbances to your settled equilibrium are opportunities for you to move forward and you can receive them with joy if you view them this way.
