scorned by others or by voices in our own heads screaming out with
disdain and contempt ... "you're worthless ... you're no good ... hated
by all". But know that these words ... or thoughts ... are from the
enemy who made those same scornful accusations as Jesus stood before the
Pharisees, Herod and Pilate ... and even then walked to the cross for
our sake, as the enemy, casting every scornful word, and even unto
stones and rocks at our Savior ... did everything he could do to try and
prevent Jesus from fulfilling His purpose ... and unto His glory forever
All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they
shake the head...
My friends scorn me: but my eye pours out tears to God.
