Morning Prayer, Friday, June 14, 2019 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: UNBOTHERED
Father God, help me to stay unbothered by the opinions and words spoken against me by others. Amen
“27 Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. 28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, 29 and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said. 30 They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. 31 After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him.” Matthew 27:27-31
“One of the best feelings in the world is when you stop caring about what other people think about you." Do you really care about what people say or think about you? Many of us do? People will talk about you. They will also lie on you and judge you. Not everyone wants to hang out with you, or be your friend. That’s okay. I can remember a time when I did care a lot about what people thought or said about me. I wanted everyone to like me. One day, I read a Scripture that talked about how people hated Jesus. People spit on Jesus. People wanted to stone Jesus. People talked about Jesus. People accused and wanted to crucify Jesus. Jesus was totally unbothered by what people thought. When he was being accused, the Bible says “He didn’t say a mumbling word.” He never tried to defend himself. He never ran up in behind these people trying to get them to like him. Many of us care too much about what people think. We have to be confident enough in ourselves to not allow the judgment or opinions of men to be our guiding force. So many of our young people today are depressed or distraught because their peers do not like them. Society makes one think that if you are not slim and beautiful, you are not. God says you are everything. To Him, you are the cat’s meow. To him you are the most beautiful thing in the world. Don’t be so concerned about what stares back at you in the mirror. Concern yourself with what comes out of you. Whether we believe it or not people are attracted to your kind heart, your smile, your genuineness, and the love that radiates from your heart.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
