It is a virtue and a prize to listen patiently to and put up with insults for the sake of God.

Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you - Matthew Chapter 5, verses 11 and 12.
