File under ‘Count the Cost’

Read this and take it to heart.

**********

“God assumed from the beginning that the wise of the world would view Christians as fools … and He has not been disappointed. Devout Christians are destined to be regarded as fools in modern society. We are fools for Christ’s sake. We must pray for courage to endure the scorn of the sophisticated world. If I have brought any message today, it is this: Have the courage to have your wisdom regarded as stupidity. Be fools for Christ. And have the courage to suffer the contempt of the sophisticated world.”
— Antonin Scalia

When the “wise world” points and mocks you,
When contempt on you is poured…
Just remember Who you follow,
Then remember your reward.

When the “wise world” marks you foolish,
Rest assured you’ll rest assured.
It’s a Promise to the Bride, sir,
Who by grace through scorn endured.
