1 Samuel 10:26-27.
  • 26:And Saul also went home to Gibeah; and there went with him a band of men, whose hearts God had touched.
  • 27:But the children of Belial said, How shall this man save us? And they despised him, and brought him no presents. But he held his peace
Interesting piece of scripture. Samuel has just anointed Saul King and immediately he got his followers. These followers accepted Saul as King and followed him.

But in the next verse, vs27, another interesting incident happened. Some people did not accept Saul as King though God has anointed him to be King. The Bible describes them as “Children of Belial.” In the Bible anytime you see the expression children of Belial, it simply means "worthless fellows".

Now, don’t be naive to expect everybody to accept what you have. You can be very gifted and anointed, still there will be people who will look down on you. You can't influence everyone, you can't touch everyone. Note vs the last phrase of vs 27, "But he held his peace"--- “hold your peace,” there is no point to try to prove a point --- The most assuring fact is that they might just be “Children of Belial” If you believe in what you carry, just move on --- its only a matter of time
