~Once you become a Christian, Satan is going to be very angry over losing you. He will whisper thoughts in people’s minds to get them to taunt you enough you will blame God instead of Satan for their harsh treatment. Jesus said in his Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7, if someone slaps you, turn the other cheek; if someone curses you, bless them. If you are treated harshly by (former) friends, what are some things you will do to respond to them as Jesus said to?
~People will try to trap you with insults. Remember, you and everyone else on earth is a sinner. The only difference between you and those who may taunt you is that you are a saved sinner. In the book, Happiness is a Choice, the author said we can respond with, “There is nothing you can say or do to get me to stop liking/loving you.” What are some ways you will show your (former) friends you still like them without joining them in certain activities you no longer do?
