Don't Cave In

Don't stop in mid-sentence if a classmate gives you a derisive look as you tell them you go to church on Sunday.


It helps to understand in advance that you have nothing to be ashamed of for going to church.

Christians, a classmate asks you what you usually do on Sundays a little before class starts. You start to say that you usually go to Church when they smirk and look around like they are going to start laughing at you.  A feeling of embarrassment can come on suddenly, and the temptation can be to say something like “just kidding” to avoid being laughed at. 

 

However, you can feel guilty later on for saying that. It helps to understand in advance that you have nothing to be ashamed of for going to church.  What will also give you courage is knowing that you will be standing up for Jesus the way you might stand up for a friend in class who is being laughed at because of biases.

 

You don’t have to continue talking about it either in these cases.  You were asked about it and you were being honest.  You aren’t forcing a discussion or your beliefs on anyone.
