"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5: 1-12
The Lord will take care of us in all our needs. We need only to be humble before Him, walk in His ways and acknowledge Him before men. Though we experience temporary pains and sufferings in this world, yet the Lord shall rescue us and vindicate us from all the evils that men will do against us. With the Lord as our good shepherd, we will never be shaken.
