Deep Thought Thursday…Preconceived Notions 

Philip went and found Nathanael and told him, “We’ve found the One Moses wrote of in the Law, the One preached by the prophets. It’s Jesus, Joseph’s son, the one from Nazareth!” 

Nathanael said, “Nazareth? You’ve got to be kidding.” But Philip said, “Come, see for yourself.”” – John 1:45-46 MSG

Nathaniel had a choice. He could roll his eyes and say a guy from Nazareth? The Messiah?  Pffft. No thanks.


To take a chance.

He choose to take a chance and his life was never the same again.

Point to ponder while you wander….Everyone has preconceived notions about people based on their experiences. But we have to choose whether we are going to hold tight to these prejudices or give people a shot on their own merit.

John 3:19 Choosing Darkness

“And here is the basis of their judgment: The Light of God has now come into the world, but the hearts of people love their darkness more than Light, because they want the darkness to conceal their evil.” John 3:19 TPT

It’s sad that a majority of the people in this world have no comprehension that they are loved with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3).

Something to ponder while you wander…Those who don’t know and don’t feel loved will display the worst they have to offer. They will choose darkness & judgment over Love. Be compassionate to those in darkness, Jesus Himself said, “Father forgive them. They know not what they’re doing.”
