"Surely He scorns the scornful, but gives grace to the humble." (Proverbs 3:45)
Those who scorn people will be scorned themselves by others. It may not be right away, but there will come a time in every scorner's life when their own actions will come back on them. The only way to prevent this is to repent and change one's ways--to be more humble. The ways of the world believe that humbleness is weak, but in reality it takes more strength to be humble. It's harder to hold oneself in reserve when being scorned. It would be much easier to lash out and defend oneself. God is our defender and vengeance is His. Therefore, if we truly work on having a humble heart in a world that scorns humbleness, God will give us the grace we need to not only endure, but to overcome and be victorious.
