Popularity is not the secret of happiness. It's in the Bible, Luke 6:26, TLB. "And what sadness is ahead for those praised by the crowds—for false prophets have always been praised."
Keep your faith firm even when it isn't popular to follow Christ. It's in the Bible, John 2:23-25, TLB. "Because of the miracles He did in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration, many people were convinced that He was indeed the Messiah. But Jesus didn't trust them, for He knew mankind to the core. No one needed to tell Him how changeable human nature is!"
Those who faithfully teach God's Word will not win any popularity contests. It's in the Bible, I John 4:6, TLB. "But we are children of God; that is why only those who have walked and talked with God will listen to us. Others won't. That is another way to know whether a message is really from God; for if it is, the world won't listen to it."
