Persecution or picking petty fights?

RC Sproul, Jr.:

"A pastor in Arizona will soon begin serving six months in jail, and paying his $12,000 fine. For what? Well, based on the slander many Christians are spreading, his crime is holding Bible studies. But what he is actually charged with is he violated local zoning laws....

"We should be beseeching the Spirit for the courage to believe we are blessed when we are persecuted for His name’s sake. And we should be asking Him for the wisdom to discern the difference between being persecuted for righteousness’ sake and being persecuted for picking a fight over silly, annoying zoning laws."
