When you embrace God’s chosen path for you, expect to be disliked, misunderstood, judged, and sometimes rejected. It’s not personal. It’s life’s rite of passage – a process we would all experience. One day, you’ll look back in hindsight and gratitude.
When I gave my life to Christ, I really had no idea what I signed up for! For one, I didn’t expect to be disliked and misunderstood by my closest and dearest. Over time I’m learning to be ok with that because a servant is not greater than his master.
Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. John 15:20, ESV.
In life, everyone will not like or accept you. You are not meant to be liked and understood by everyone. Be OK with that.
