Innocent Things


But when they opposed and insulted him, Paul shook the dust from his clothes and said, "Your blood is upon your own heads — I am innocent. From now on I will go preach to the Gentiles." found in Acts 18


Things are often not what we have formed an opinion of in our minds. Satan uses people to destroy, and God delivers us. What is important is that we remain innocent with our testimony. Walk the walk, talk the talk, but let it be about our Jesus journey.

Walking down the street, I saw the sun shining bright on this fruit.




I thought that I had never noticed this tree having fruit. Interesting! I looked around the tree for others, and there were none, just this one.


And then I got another view of things...



Things are not always as we see them. First impressions may fail us, but God will use just one to make a difference. Be the one who allows the One to make a difference and, at the very least, remain in His peace. Yes, sometimes we will have to walk away from people. They are unreachable by us, but God has another that will reach them. It's okay to walk away but never not to pray!
