Share It Anyway

You are a spring of water giving Israel life and hope.
But if the people reject what you have told me,
they will be swept away like words written in dust.

(Jeremiah 17:13 CEV)

Who would know this better than God’s own prophet? Jeremiah had faithfully passed down God’s message to the people, but he also realized that not everyone would accept it. Similarly, while we’re called to share God’s Word with others, we must also be willing to accept the fact that not everyone will accept it and that we shouldn’t waste time trying to convince them. When Jesus sent out His disciples to preach, He warned them of the same thing, “When you are welcomed into a home, stay there until you leave that town. If any place won’t welcome you or listen to your message, leave and shake the dust from your feet as a warning to them” (Mark 6:10-11). So don’t be discouraged when people reject what you say about Him, and continue to share His Word anyway.

Share God’s message, even if not all accept it.
