Missions Blog gives us 11 More Things That Will Make Everyone Dislike You and Shipwreck Your Faith.
I like #1 and #3 on this list:
1. When you share something and people think it is strange and don’t like it, call it conviction. When someone shares something you think is strange and don’t like, call it discernment.
3. If something bad is happening to someone else assume it is because of sin. If something bad is happening in your life assume it is spiritual attack or persecution.
