Think about such things...

"'Whatever town or village you enter, search for some worthy person there and stay at his house until you leave.  As you enter the home, give it your greeting.  If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you.  If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town.'"  -Matthew 10:11-14 (NIV)

"'When you enter a town or village, don't insist on staying in a luxury inn.  Get a modest place with some modest people, and be content there until you leave.  When you knock on a door, be courteous in your greeting.  If they welcome you, be gentle in your conversation.  If they don't welcome you, quietly withdraw.  Don't make a scene.  Shrug your shoulders and be on your way.'"  -Matthew 10:11-14 (MSG)

If you're feeling spiritually discouraged by those around you, shake that dust off, shrug your shoulders, and be on your way!


  1. Thanks for the encouragement...I needed to hear that this morning!

  2. I accidentally erased a comment I was trying to moderate...

    Jamie said, "Great verse!"

  3. Wonderful advice! I will be passing this along after I read it a few more times!

    Popping in from SITS!
