When people deride you
People deride us for doing what the Bible says, but do not let that derision make you back off. Imitate the psalmist,
The proud have me in great derision,
Yet I do not turn aside from Your law.
Set your mind on doing the Lord’s commandments, but prepare yourself for attacks from Satan. He will use anyone he can to make you want to turn aside from doing what the Lord wants. Satan’s temptations will be powerful, but make up your mind now to be like the psalmist.
