We all know challenging people, and we’re all a challenge to someone else. Here’s how several famous men described those they didn’t particularly like: “I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure.” Clarence Darrow “I didn’t attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.” Mark Twain “I feel so miserable without you, it’s almost like having you here.” Stephen Bishop “He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire.” Winston Churchill “He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends.” Oscar Wilde “He’s a self-made made who worships his creator.” John Bright “He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary.” William Faulkner about Ernest Hemingway.
As Oscar Wilde creatively described it, “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.” As Christians, let us strive to be people with the former, not the latter said of them.
