I am creating a new circumstance, while making the best use of my circumstances as best i can, to impact my world positively to the glory of my creator!
Joan Debo Sanusi
“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.”
George Bernard Shaw – July 26th 1857 – November 2nd, 1950
A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home – Mark 6:4
“Familiarity breeds contempt”. “The Cambridge dictionary explains it this way, that “if you know someone very well you stop respecting them because you have seen all of their bad qualities“
This is what causes frictions in relationship. Jesus Christ experienced it in His home town. The people that knew him intimately, that have lived with him could not recognize the power at work in him. They could not benefit from it either.
Therefore, what you are experiencing is not strange to you. Your closest relationship, and those that know you casually may not see your worth as a being. Your genuineness, love, and virtues, may not be appreciated.
You speak wisdom and truth, speaks justice, peace, fairness, kindness, give wise counsel, and it is overlooked or ignored. It is a natural phenomenon summed up in “Familiarity breeds contempt”
I want you to know:
The unbelief of Jesus’s hometown does not negate or reduce the effect of His grace, love, and power to work wonders in the lives of many others of His days. Mark 6:13
