Everything that people do to me, they have effectively done to Jesus. The Lord takes attacks against His children personal. Mark 9:42, “And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.” Although some people assume that this verse speaks of little children, it actually refers to born-again Christians. How do I know that? Carefully notice the phrase, “THAT BELIEVE IN ME.” So it is a matter of faith in Jesus. Certainly God has a special place in His heart for little children, and I believe a special reserved wrath for anyone who harms an innocent child; but this Scripture about having a millstone (which usually weighs about 500 pounds) hanged around one's neck and cast into the sea, regards harming a redeemed child of God. Be careful how you treat a Christian, because the Lord is their Master. Matthew 25:40, “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” When you're messing with a Christian, you're messing with the Lord Himself!
