SHAKE IT OFF

One of the greatest deterrents to our spiritual growth and progress is our inability to shake off the things done to us by others. We can’t get on with our lives because we are still angry and hurt by another’s sin against us. We must find ways of redirecting our antagonism into something higher. We must channel our hurt, our anger, our despair, and our disappointment into something positive. Let go. Unpack the baggage. Stop wallowing in the quicksand of the past. Get your passport stamped and move on to higher ground, to your next destination.

Jesus exhorts His disciples in Matthew 10 to persevere in the midst of rejection and harm. If the people do not receive you, don’t get stuck. Don’t waste your life away crying and complaining; shake the dust from your feet and keep on moving. Don’t get put in spiritual, emotional, and psychological jail by the things other people do to you. After it’s done, don’t give them the keys to your jail cell by living in solitary confinements of unhappiness and pain. Free yourself from the jail of self-pity, and work toward your eternal reward.

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
