S is for Shoes.

"And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet." Matthew 10:14.

Sometimes I wonder if our egos are so big that we just can't accept that people won't listen to us. We spend more time trying to kick down spiritual doors that God hasn't opened for us. We waste our energy on things that are getting us no where, when we should be moving on to where God is leading us.

Ecclesiastes talks about there is a time and season for everything. The Byrds sang about it. Dave Perkins redid the Byrds version. Sometimes we need to fight. Sometimes we need to walk away. Discernment is knowing when to stay and talk or when to wipe the dust from our SHOES.

Sharing Jesus isn't about winning arguments. It's about Love. For God is Love.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

No problem man. Hope it helped.
Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed and lose sight of the Truth that God loves us no matter what. We love Him because He first loved us. While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Praise Him in the storms bro.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

So absolutely true. Sometimes we miss opportunities because we're so busy beating the same old dead horse.
Need to know when to move on.
