Hello and happy Monday my Lovelies!
Many times we all hear people talk about how much they can’t stand their haters, how they wish that they (haters) would go away, stop hating and get something of their own. I dislike haters as much as the next person but I have come to know that haters serve a purpose. What purpose do they serve you ask? It depends on your particular situation.
I have found in my experience that when someone identifies a hater in their midst they are quick to rebuke them, out them and then blast them to others. Why? Jesus had a betrayer in his midst the entire 3 years He was doing His ministry work and knew it the whole time. Judas was a hater, a betrayer. His nature, tendencies and eventual betrayal was known to Jesus from the beginning, even when Jesus called him to discipleship. But Jesus, with all of this knowledge, did not out Judas to the others, he treated him no different. It wasn’t until they were all in the upper room celebrating the Passover that it was revealed that Judas would betray Jesus. Judas served a purpose. Your haters(s) serve a purpose but they cannot serve their purpose if you dismiss them prematurely. Know who your Judas is, keep them close and under a watchful eye. Once they have served their purpose, they will be removed from your presence. On the flip side, do a self-examination because you in turn could be someone else’s Judas.
If your haters(s) make you work that much harder, drive you to do and be better, good that is their job; yours is to know who you are dealing with and keep moving. Rejoice in other’s prosperity, be a blessing rather than a hinderance.
Blessings and Happiness
