You Have Them!

Everyone has them.
Moses had them.
David had them.
Jeremiah had them.
Jesus had them.
The apostles had them.
We will all have them.

Everyone will have critics (of the destructive rather than the constructive variety), regardless whether you are worldly or conservative. Sure, some will be louder than others, but the venom is always poisonous. Their purpose is not to build up but to tear down. Today, there are so many self-professed experts on everyone else’s business. They might not be able to make a living or raise commendable children, but they sure are quick to tell everyone else what to do.

Would you believe they can be a blessing? One way you can tell you are on the right track is by who dislikes and criticizes you. It is a scary thing when the wrong people like you.

“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.” (Matthew 5:10-12)
