Do You Believe?
Willing Workers II
At first it sounds like Jesus is sending them out to fail
"Peace" – equivalent to ‘shalom’ and refers to prosperity, well being and blessing.
"Shake the dust off your feet" – an expression of disdain after returning from gentile region.
Question: Do you believe what JESUS said?
He will provide. We are so use to calculated risk that we will only commit to something when we are assure. Jesus method is very different. He wants us trust and go by faith (One suitcase challenge/ deep end)
“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to." -Steve Jobs
