But when His family heard about this, they went out to lay hold of Him, for they said, “He is out of His mind.” Mark 3:21 New International Version
When your family and friends laugh at you, mock you and or consider you crazy for giving up all worldly desires to follow the path Christ has for you in life, just remember, Jesus’ family thought He was nuts too.
If you give up a successful career to go work in the slums or when you walk away from the booze, sex and drugs, when you walk away from the malls and walk toward Jesus of course those around you will not understand. What they do not and cannot understand they label as crazy because it does not fit their idea of normal.
I would rather be crazy for Jesus than be normal and in Hell. Joseph- Anthony: Green
It will be painful to have to say goodbye to those close to you but Jesus will reward you with a solid loving, respectful relationship with Him and with those in His divine family.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for healing me of the wounds inflicted upon me whose words cut deep because of my choice to walk with You. Please forgive them for they do not know what they are doing. I meekly thank you and ask for this forgiveness in the name of He who forgave those who mocked Him as he suffered upon the cross Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day .
