For even Jesus’ brothers didn’t believe in him.” (John 7:5 NLT)
The New York Mets were the laughing stock of baseball through the 1960s, posting the worst win/loss record in baseball history. The joke at the time was which would happen first, a winning season by the Mets or Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Well, both got there the same year in 1969. The Miracle Mets of 1969 shook the sports world by doing what no one thought could ever happen.
Sometimes we feel like that, like no one believes in us, that we really are special and can achieve in life or spiritually. Jesus knew how this felt. Personally. Both his family and His nation would largely reject Him. Yet notice that Jesus never stopped working and serving.
The day of silent skeptics in not found in the midst of our doing, but like with both Jesus and the Mets, in the completion of our work. Don’t be frustrated by people and their opinions. Trust in the One who KNOWS who you are and what He will accomplish through you! Completion will always quiet the critics! You are loved today!
