Keep your promise to me, your servant—the promise you make to those who obey you. Save me from the insults I fear; how wonderful are your judgments! I want to obey your commands; give me new life, for you are righteous.

Psalm 119:38-40 (GNT)

The criticism we receive from man cannot compare to the judgment of the Lord, but it can harm our Christian witness and reputation. We pray that God would use the contempt of men for the sake of His witness and give us the desire to know Him more.
