“Some people will never like you because you irritate their demons.”Denzel Washington

When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!”  For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!” Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” “My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.” (Mark 5:6-10 NKJV)

  1. WOW. What a profound statement. I hope this helps some people who are feeling bad today and wondering why some people don’t like them.
    I pray every day that if (WHEN) I’m despised, it isn’t because I’m a despicable person with a despicable attitude, doing despicable things. But if I’m despised and rejected by the same people who despise and reject Jesus, then they’re identifying me with Him. I’ll wear their rejection as a badge of honor.
