The World's Hatred

"If the world hates you, remember that it has hated me first.
The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it,
but you are no longer part of the world.
I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you."
John 15:18-19

"You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. 
And you will know the truth
and the truth will set you free."
John 8:31b-32

I have a serious problem. Some of you may have it, too. It's called, "Pleasing-People-Syndrome." I like to make people happy. I like to make sure they're comfortable over my own happiness and comfort. But sometimes I battle this and try to compromise it with what God is telling me. But people won't always understand God's will for someone else's life. The world values MONEY, fame, selfishness...but the true treasure is stored in Heaven.
