"Contempt" Video Devotion
"Contempt" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 123, verses 3 and 4. We all like to be liked, do we not? As a matter of fact, sometimes it is hard to be different--to always be at odds with the popular opinions of the day. For the believer, however, to be true to the teachings of God's Word, often being different becomes the norm. The Psalmist certainly felt the contempt manifested in the pride and arrogance of the people. Pride, however, has no place in the heart of the Christian. Jesus, the Son of God, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords did not manifest pride and arrogance. He, who was above all, came to this earth with the heart of a servant, ready to do His Father's will. How, then, can we expect to do less?
