God will bless you when others hate you and won’t have anything to do with you. God will bless you when people insult you and say cruel things about you, all because you are a follower of the Son of Man. Long ago your own people did these same things to the prophets. So when this happens to you, be happy and jump for joy! You will have a great reward in heaven.
Now, more than any other time in recent history, it is difficult to be a Christian. When I was a teenager is was uncool, but now, it's positively taboo. People think that Christians are narrow-minded and hypocritical. We need to be prepared for when people reject us because of our faith. Luke says to be happy when this happens because being rejected doesn't compare to the awesome blessings that we will get in heaven because we endured it. Considering what Jesus suffered for me, the least I can do is endure being criticised or left out because I'm a Christian.
