Dust Shakers

When people reject you, it’s time to move on. It was for a good reason that Jesus said to his disciples: “And if anyone will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet when you leave that house or town” (Matthew 10:14 ESV).

Don’t keep on trying to turn the no to a yes. You may want to try several times just to see if they have misunderstood you or if you have not understood them correctly. Once it is clear to you that what you have to offer is unacceptable to the other person, it’s time to move on.

Move on to the next person. What is not beneficial to one will be helpful to another.  There are people who need your message. There are those who are eagerly waiting to receive the help you can give them. You are the answer to their prayers. If you don’t move on, you’ll never get to these people.

Keep refining your approach. Your core message remains the same, but your way of presentation may change according to the circumstances. Maybe as you face more rejections, that will give you an opportunity to refine your methods.
