The Reproach of Men

on November 8, 2012

Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart I have written my law, fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings. (2 Ne. 8:7). This part of the Book of Second Nephi quotes from the Book of Isaiah? (in Chapter 51) so in both the old world and the new, the Lord admonished His people not to fear the reproach or criticism of the people around them.

The Lord urges us not to worry about what other people think of us regardless of whether those other people are righteous or wicked, wise or foolish. The passage above does not make any distinct based about who does the reproaching or reviling. The only being whose opinion of us should matter to us is God Himself. To make our citizen participation the spiritual experience we should make it, we need have an eye single to the glory of God.
