Haters Gon Hate

“If you ain’t got no haters you ain’t poppin'” – Rico Richie 

What is a hater? A person who doesn’t want to see someone else doing good. They talk behind your back, secretly wish bad on you and try to tear you down physically, mentally or spiritually. They focus on your flaws and magnify your insecurities. A haters mission is to hate on what you are doing, who you are or your goals, dreams and ambitions. Simply put, haters hate.

Believers, if you allow a hater’s words to get to you, it can get the best of you. Eventually, their negativity can effect your mood, personality or self-esteem. When a hater hates, you are left with the negativity and it can be difficult to find healthy coping techniques to manage their energy. If someone hears their entire life ‘you can’t do that, you’re worthless or you will never amount to anything’ subconsciously that voice will play in their head when it is time for them to be great. I’m here to remind you, hush that voice!

Hate is a powerful technique Satan uses to hurt people. Those who hold hate in their heart are not of God and as a Believer it is important that you have discernment. You must know how is for you and who is against you. When you are aware of a hater it is easy to remember not to take it personal because they are just doing what a hater does. It is a haters job to hate!

In John 15:18-25, Jesus reminds us that the world hated him first. He was mocked, beaten and disrespected, all for being righteous. Jesus came into the world to help people but the haters did what they do best and He ended up crucified. Do not worry about the hate, instead remember that you do not belong to this world. It is a blessing to have haters because it is a reminder that you are chosen by God and will have a greater reward than anything this world could ever offer. Let the haters hate and keep doing you!


The World Hates the Disciples

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’
