RE Verse reading–Matthew 9:35-10:31 (day five) “If anyone does not welcome you or listen to your word, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town” (vs 14) Such practical advice! Such powerful help! The disciples learned early to “shake the dust off” from experiences of failure or rejection. They were to discard every reminder of the experience. “Forget it!” said the Lord. Don’t brood over it. Don’t rehearse the hurt or wonder what you could have done differently. It is a waste of energy. Paul learned the same lesson. “FORGETTING what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead” (Philippians 3:13) How would your life be better if you stopped thinking about the failures and hurts of the past? Jesus calls us to a fresh start, to accept His forgiveness, to leave vengeance (and even the need to be understood) behind. Shake the dust off! Get forward into the new adventure that God has for you!
