There are always some.
Acts 17:31 “When they heard about the resurrection of the dead, some of them sneered, but others said, ‘We want to hear you again on this subject.’
There is always one, at least one, sometimes some.
Recently someone said to me “I haven’t heard anyone criticise your work, everyone says how great you are doing. I have only heard one person say something against you.”
Now guess who I was thinking about in that conversation?!
There is always one, sometimes there are some.
Recently I was in a church, a beautiful refurbished church. It is amazing. Before the service started I was just marvelling at the building to 2 nice old ladies. They sneered and mumbled something.
There are always two, sometimes there are some.
Recently I walked into a group of four pastors who were discussing the ministry. But on earshot I realised that though these guys have the awesome privilege of what I think is one of the best jobs in the world they were actually taking it in turns to denounce their positions as the worst jobs God ever thought of. I didn’t stay.
There are always four, sometimes there are some.
Jesus had people sneer at him, so why should we expect anything different?
So let’s get over it. Let us settle this once and for all. In who you are, what you do, no matter how much you give or how hard you work there is always some who will sneer at you.
Let us love the some because we already love the many.
