You’re not going to be everyone’s favorite person. People will think you’re ignorant for being a Christian. Friends will laugh at you for leaving that Saturday get-together early because you have to get up early on Sunday. I’ve seen, heard, or experienced it all by this point. It’s important to remember though that you gotta do you. You’re not always going to be understood by people. You are on your own journey and not everyone is going to necessarily “get it”.
Proverbs 9:8 (MSG)
7-12 If you reason with an arrogant cynic, you’ll get slapped in the face;
confront bad behavior and get a kick in the shins.
So don’t waste your time on a scoffer;
all you’ll get for your pains is abuse.
But if you correct those who care about life,
that’s different—they’ll love you for it!
Save your breath for the wise—they’ll be wiser for it;
tell good people what you know—they’ll profit from it.
Skilled living gets its start in the Fear-of-God,
insight into life from knowing a Holy God.
It’s through me, Lady Wisdom, that your life deepens,
and the years of your life ripen.
Live wisely and wisdom will permeate your life;
mock life and life will mock you.
In conclusion as a wise philosopher once said:
“And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off”
