1 Peter 4:4–They are surprised that you do not join then in their reckless wild living and they heap abuse on you.
Non-believers do not understand our commitment to God. They don’t understand our desire to be obedient to what God tells us and as a result, they make fun of us and are mean to us. When we evaluate our relationships with non-Christians, do they see us as different? Do they recognize that we do not do all the things that they do? Regardless of their response to us, we are to commit ourselves to Christ and follow Him.
Father, I will care only about Your response to me, not the world’s response. They will see me as different because I follow You.
