Jesus told them, “A prophet has little honor in his hometown, among his relatives, on the streets he played in as a child.” (Mark 6: 4 MSG)
Jesus experienced something I think most of us have at times as believers. Sometimes the hardest people to witness to are those we love and know the most. I know countless pastors who have lost siblings, parents and childhood friends, but have limited success witnessing to them. It’s been a struggle for me at times also.
Do you share this experience? Is it hardest for you to witness to your own family and friends? Why do you think that’s the case? How do you combat the fear or do you?
