"He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" (John 1:11-12 KJV) Those who we expect will, won't; and those we expect won't, will! Don't waste any time, effort, or energy in addressing people who don't accept, affirm, and appreciate you! (Haters) Rather, allow to the fullest degree those that do, to be blessed by the gift of you!
PRAYER: Lord, help us to recognize and bless those that accept and celebrate us and to leave our haters in your hands. Amen!
Prov 17:17. . . . A true friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need. TLB
