"There's no telling who will hate you because of Me."
Christ knew all of what was in their hearts and spoke angrily of their actions.
The wonderment of our Savior though, is if you read carefully in the verses today, His anger was because of all those they were hindering or leading astray from Him.
Even on His way and upon The Cross.
He looked beyond their actions, into their hearts, and what He saw brought about sorrowfulness, not hatred towards them. He continually gave to them the opportunity to change their hearts and give up "self" for Him.
This is the Christlike attitude I pray to achieve.
To completely accept - no matter what - it isn't my job to protect or defend "me".
To believe without any doubt whatsoever - He has me covered - "every detail of my body and soul - even the hairs of my head."
