DG Book

Gospel: Mark 6:1-6
Leaving that place, Jesus returned to his own country, and his disciples followed him. When the Sabbath came,
he began to teach in the synagogue, and most of those who heard him were astonished.
But they said, “How did this come to him? What kind of wisdom has been given to him, that he also performs such miracles?
Who is he but the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and the brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? His sisters, too,


are they not here among us?” So they took offense at him. And Jesus said to them, “Prophets are despised only in their own country,
among their relatives, and in their own family.” And he could work no miracles there, but only healed a few sick people,
by laying his hands on them. Jesus himself was astounded at their unbelief. Jesus then went around the villages, teaching.

REFLECTION:
Rejection, especially by our own relatives and town mates, can be a very painful experience. If a person is not careful,
rejection can lead to depression, which when not treated well, can lead to insanity or suicide. Jesus is also rejected.
Although the people acknowledge his wisdom and power to perform miracles, yet they could not accept him because of his fami­ly background.
Their bias and prejudice blind them, so they could not recognize Jesus’ love for them.
But this does not stop Jesus from doing his mission of preaching and healing.
He is determined to follow the will of God in spite of rejections. Jesus says,
“My food is to do the will of him who sent me and complete his work” (John 4:34).
How do I handle rejections in my life?
