Every adult encounters hassles from critics somewhere along the way.

Often, it’s at the job when a particular co-worker doesn’t like you and you might even not know why.

What you do know is that any error is magnified in significance, either in how it is perceived or in how it is broadcast to others at work.

The same is sometimes true of stressed relationships with relatives, with classmates or even with others at church.

There are very few people who aren’t disliked by at least one person.

So how do we respond to people who don’t like us?

By not liking them back?

That’s not the mature approach, is it?

It’s certainly not the Christian approach.

Here is King Solomon’s advice in the matter:

“When people’s lives please the Lord,
even their enemies are at peace with them.” (Proverbs 16:7)

Let’s do what makes God happy. Let’s live the squeaky clean life that Jesus lived.

Let’s do the Philippians 4:8-9 thing and we’ll face less harrassment from other people.

And a harrassment-free life is definitely worth pursuing.

As always, I love you
