But on the bright side
by Shandha Woodard  
2/27/2012 / Devotionals

People will arrest you and treat you cruelly. They will judge you in their synagogues and put you in jail then force you to stand before kings and governors because you follow me. But this will give you an opportunity to tell about me-Luke 21:12&13 NCV

The last part of those two verses is kind of comical, if you ask me. I find it a bit comical because Jesus was saying in spite of all hell breaking lose around you, here's your chance to boast (let the one who boasts boast in the Lord-1 Corinthians 1:31). Or in other words yes, life is beating you up right now but on the bright side, this situation has presented an opportunity for you to brag on me.

There is always a brighter side to anything that may happen in this life. Don't believe that to be true then check out what the Bible has to say in 2 Corinthians 4:8&9 (we are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed {the bright side}; perplexed, but not in despair {the bright side}; persecuted, but not abandoned {the bright side}; struck down, but not destroyed {the bright side}). If the Bible says that there's a bright side, then it must be true.

"The habit of looking on the bright side of every event is worth more than a thousand pounds ($1625.60) a year"-Samuel Johnson
