If I give money to the poor, and I do it in a way to seek the praise of men, I will find what I seek.
If I am reviled and persecuted by men, because that is what I sought, I prove I will find what I seek.
If I love someone with the love of Jesus, and they revile and persecute me, they do so because they desperately need Jesus but are rejecting Him because they are hurting in some way. I continue to love them, as does Jesus. And if that person realizes that God’s love, through me, is not extinguished by rejection, they may dare to hope that God’s love is real, unconditional, and offered freely to them. They might reach out to Jesus and find Him. And He will heal them.
I am flawed, and without merit. But see I Jesus working in me. He will work in you as well
