Psalm 34 (NIV)
5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.

18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

147:3 He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.

One of the most important things you can ever do for someone is to accept them. One of the worst things you can ever do is to reject someone.

There is not a person alive who has not experienced rejection. For some of us it began at a very early age in our lives. It left some of us emotionally wounded while others moved on. Physical wounds sometimes heal much more quickly than emotional wounds and psychological wounds. Those wounds can stay with us for a long, long time and really affect the way we feel.

In the story with Joseph, we find that his brothers are jealous of him--so much so, the Bible says in (Genesis 37:1-4), "they hated him."

As you read on in the chapter, you will find that his brothers not only reject him and despise him, but they finally sell him into bondage:

Little did they know that God had special plans for Joseph--he would later become the deliverer of his people, including his own brothers who had rejected him.

Rejection is not always an easy thing to handle. Imagine the feelings of Joseph, to know that his own flesh and blood hated him and rejected him?

Did you know that the Lord is interested in not only the healing of the physical body, not only the healing of the soul, but He is also interested in the healing of the spirit and the mind of man and that part of you that experiences rejection.

Prayer for Today: Father in heaven, thank you for healing my wounds today. Thank you for mending every broken place in my heart. When I am rejected may I be reminded of your love for me. In Jesusí Name. Amen.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Rejection is devastating and especially when it comes from a parent, spouse, or other family member, not to mention rejection from people who wear the title of CHRISTIAN. I am for the underdog and my heart grieves for anyone who endured rejection. Jesus was a recipient of rejection also and so we must remember that he knows our pain. Thank you Faith for this piece.

This well written devotional is an excellent reminder of the sadness of rejection and the importance of accepting others.
