Daily Thought: It is Better to be a Believer

"Regardless of what a Christian goes though, it is better to suffer as a believer than to live as a pagan...We may suffer evil men's schemes.  We may even suffer from natural disasters.  But when we put our head to the pillow at night, we need not fear death, feel shame, wrestle with remorse, carry guilt, search for hope, worry over our destiny or wonder about our destination.  We don't have to dodge demons, live with locusts, run from horsemen, or cower under Satanic attack.  More than all this, we don't have to face God in a contest of colossal proportions.  In fact, he stands with us as our shield and first line of defense." ~ Mark Moore, How to Dodge a Dragon: A Devotional Reading of Revelation, p. 53
