Psalm 1:1Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night.
From the “attitude” face of young people to the disdainful expressions of the old it is the lot of Christians to weather the blistering scorn of every enemy of Christ whether or not we like it. Jesus said we “are blessed” to endure the same sort of scorn that he did. I don’t really know if I am ready each new day to encounter that sort of rejection and unfortunately, even though I have every Biblical example always before me, far too often I shrink back from living Christ before everyone I encounter. That may begin even toward the person who wakes up next to you in the morning.
Because of a difficult physical situation, I have had to rely on my wife to assist me in the most difficult and embarrassing necessities of life. All to frequently I have found myself taking her for granted and asking things of her that I never would have thought of even a few months ago. So; Why am I prattling on like this?
The answer is that we in danger every day. We awaken to God’s grace with a choice. Will I follow Jesus in all things, or will I shrink back into my own fear and pain and imitate the world? Will I act as Jesus did?
