Scripture

John 15:23-25

Prayer

Father there will always be disbelievers and haters. I’m grateful for my relationship with You and I’m grateful for the life that You have given me. I’m grateful for life’s lessons and for the people that You have placed in my life, even those who didn’t have the best intentions for me. I’ve learned a lot in this short time I’ve been here and I’m grateful for these experiences. I pray for many more sunrises, sunsets, cleansing breaths, laughs, and even moments when I shed tears. I look forward to what the future holds and my place in it. I want to do my part to help build Your Kingdom and reflect You as best as I can for as long as You allow. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Reflection

If you think you have issues with haters, consider what Jesus went through, and consider that now more than two thousand years after His ascension, there are people who still hate on Him. Sadly, people hated and hate Him for absolutely no reason. Can you say that? Now imagine God’s experience with the human race. There are millions who don’t believe in Him and millions who curse Him. Can you relate? Not even possible.

Now look at your life again. Alright, go ahead and laugh. You have it easy and you know it. Thank God for sparing you from the hate and foolishness.
