From Pastor Mike's Good Morning message in the bulletin:

A young salesman became discouraged because he had been rejected by so many customers he approached. He asked a more experienced salesman for some advice.

“Why is it that every time I make a call on someone I get rejected?”

“I just don’t understand that,” answered the older salesman. “I’ve been hit on the head, called dirty names, and thrown out the door, but I’ve never been rejected.”

Rejection isn’t what happens to us but how we interpret what happens to us. Like the apostle Paul, we face many rejections in our life. Sometimes we are rejected by friends, sometimes like family, or, like Paul, by other religious colleagues. What we must remember is that there is one who never rejects us when we go to Him. Even when we reject him, he always patiently waits for us to change our mind. He understands rejection and acceptance.
