1 Peter 3:17 New Living Translation (NLT)

17 Remember, it is better to suffer for doing good, if that is what God wants, than to suffer for doing wrong!

You’re going to  suffer. You get to decide what you’re suffering for, is it worth it? If you suffer for doing the right thing you will be rewarded.

Sometimes I am my own worst enemy.  My mouth gets me into trouble.  I suffer because of what I say AND sometimes “how” I say it because I have the sassy mouth.  I can choose to be silent and not open my mouth.  This is a reasonable option for me.
