Christians are held to a higher standard than the rest of the world. What we stand for and the choices that we make may not be popular with those around us. This verse reminds us to take courage and remember that with the LORD as our helper and on our side, we have nothing to fear. Yes, men can hurt our body, but man cannot take away our eternity in Heaven with God. And heaven is far better than even 100 years of suffering in this world. For this we rejoice!
