ALL ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED (Romans 11:25-27) "For I do not want you, brethern to be uninformed of this mystery-sonthat you will no be wise in your own esimation-that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; and so all Israel will be saved..."
while it’s tough to have compassion for someone who’s hurting us in the moment of rejection, it is possible to have compassion for their obvious hurt. Hurt people hurt people. Dig beneath the surface of a mean girl and you’ll find a girl riddled with insecurities and possibly even self-hatred.
