“For you sympathized with the prisoners and accepted with joy the confiscation of your possessions, knowing that you yourselves have a better and enduring possession.”

Hebrews 10:34 HCSB

The Hebrews to whom Paul was writing had taken some great risks for their faith in supporting Christian prisoners to their own financial detriment. They could have just written letters and prayed from a safe distance, but instead they took food and clothing, lest their brothers in chains starve. As a result, their homes were raided and valuables taken.

Being a Christ follower is not a “crutch” or an “easy way out.” On the contrary, we are promised hardship AND told to “count it all joy when you encounter various trials.” Are you willing to set aside the expectations of comfort you had for your life to chase after the Giver of Dreams?🚦
