Shake the dust off your feet

Matthew 10:14 (WEBBE): 14Whoever doesn’t receive you, nor hear your words, as you go out of that house or that city, shake the dust off your feet.

These are Jesus’ words as He sent out the twelve. It sounds harsh, but this instruction is to protect those He sent from agonizing about not reaching somebody. Jesus knew it would happen back then, and it still happens today. Don’t get stuck on that one person that you can’t reach, becoming ineffective for the Kingdom by missing all the other opportunities that will come your way.
