Have you been rejected, or tossed aside? You know, the very people whom you have great respect for, those you love and call ‘family’ are the people who have rejected you. Maybe not physically, but they have rejected your ability, your potentials, they have rejected you ever getting up or making it in life. You can’t even make comments or contributions in words in their presence; they think you add no value to them now because of your status or the amount in your bank account. You can’t speak up in family functions or even in the midst of friends. You have been scorned, rejected and disowned by the very people you love.
Psalm 118: 22 says, ‘The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.’ Did you notice that it said, ‘the builders’? Who better should know about stones than the very builders who used it, the ones you should expect more from, the people that daily meet and make use of these materials, the people that you live with and should know you better. – The builders rejected the stone. Is it a loved one who has rejected you? Maybe due to one failure or the other; or a set back in your life or even during the struggles of life? Is it a partner who has looked down on your ability or your potentials? You will be amazed at how some couples, husband or wife has rejected the other party; they can't seem to see anything good in them. A wife who has trampled her husband's reputation on the ground because of his financial situation. She has looked down on him and tossed him aside because of set backs in life.
Those are like the builders. The same people who know the important of a stone in a building work; the same people who know very well the usefulness of it. Those that you value and expect their love, support and encouragement are the same who have rejected you. Is it a husband who has rejected his wife? They have looked down on their potentials and abilities in life? Because you are not like other career women or probably because you are still waiting for children on your own. You feel rejected, you feel trampled and you are discouraged. You have lost you confident and strength in the midst of all these. You have become the stone which the builders have rejected.
