Rejected By Those Around Us:
Have you ever felt rejected by those close to you? I know I have. Those close to us may reject us for many reasons. Sometimes we are excluded because they do not think we have anything of worth to say. Other times it could be because of various reasons, with one being jealousy.
You could be rejected because you come from a poor background, and do not meet the standards of others.
You just need to remember, that Jesus knows what you are going through, as He was also excluded from many circles.
While others may brush you off giving you the cold shoulder, there is always others waiting with open arms to embrace you.
Jesus Not Taken Seriously:
Many who knew Jesus looked down on Him. And they dismissed Him as only being a carpenters son. Further more they probably looked at Him as one being uneducated, and not having anything of worth to say. Perhaps He wasn’t educated in the way they thought a leader should be.
Jesus knew how the people felt. As a result He didn’t perform any big miracles close to home because He knew they wouldn’t believe Him.
Jesus Rejected at Nazareth
53 Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there. 54 When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55 Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? 56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?” 57 So they were offended at Him.
But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” 58 Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief. Matthew 13:53-58
There is always someone out there waiting to listen to you. Someone you can call a friend. If those closest to you exclude you, just remember, keep moving forward. Other doors are bound to open somewhere, and you will eventually be included.https://www.dreamstime.com/leolaa-latest-stock-photos https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/leola-durant https://www.redbubble.com/people/lrant999/shop?asc=u&ref=artist_title_name https://www.zazzle.ca/store/mycreatorscreation https://www.shutterstock.com/g/Elle777/video?rid=223006761
