And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.
Some thoughts on today’s scripture
- Grace from the Latin word means free, a gift, not earned. Have you experienced a ‘call’ to you from God? Would you like to have God call you? If so, what might this call involve?
- ‘No prophet is accepted in the prophet’s hometown.’ Who are the modern day prophets in our world today and what is their message? Do I listen to their message, or do I react with rage and drive them away, as was the case with Jesus? Can I take a moment to be honest with myself and with Jesus now.
