Recently, I was asked for advice about feeling like an outcast in school. I probably didn’t say the right thing, but I did say this:
Better days are ahead.
I also said that we can get mad at God about it.
But you know what?
You can’t criticize God for not understanding what it’s like to be an outcast.
That’s one thing we can not do. He endured it.
In the very end he’s left out by even his own friends. Sure they celebrated him for a little while, but then the crowd turns on him in the same week! They went from “The King is here!” to “Crucify Him!” and then he’s on the cross feeling utterly forsaken.
If you’re an outcast, please don’t reject God as if He’s not practical and doesn’t get it.
He gets you better than anybody.
