Dirty Feet

There comes a time in our life where we can share something with others. We are excited. It is good news. It is good for others. We know they need it. And for whatever reason they just won’t listen! And no matter what you say, they just won’t have it! Even if you beg, cajole, or coax they just won’t listen. It is so frustrating! You want to scream but ‘you need this’! Nope. Nothing. What to do?

Paul did this. He walked to the edge of the town and shook off the dust from his feet. Fine! Have it your way! And he left. The ones who remained had dirty feet.

Those who moved on were following the will of God. When we love someone, and we want the best for them, we must realize that there are times where they don’t want to listen to us. No matter what you do they have ears but do not want to hear. Then we must realize it is a waste of our time arguing with them.

There are others who want to hear. Do we just forget our friends? No, we take them to prayer. Asking God to send someone into their lives to lead them back to God. Then we shake the dust from our feet and move on.

May the Lord bless you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
