1 Peter 3:14-17
But and if you suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are you: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;…
"I cannot do this," said a Christian merchant, in reference to some business operations in which he was asked to take part — "I cannot do this. There is a man inside of me that won't let me do it. He talks to me of nights about it, and I have to do business in a different way!" Oh! those talks of night about the business of the day, when the "man inside" has our ear and there is no escape from the judgment he pronounces! Thrice blessed is he who is able to hear it in peace!
