At Issue - Rejection

2 Chronicles 11:13–17

Rejection hurts—when your boss hands you a pink slip, or your husband walks out on you, or a close friend deserts you. Rejection makes you doubt your abilities, your worth, your purpose in life. But not all rejection is bad. The Levites were rejected by Jeroboam, who wanted to choose his own priests to offer sacrifices to false gods. Painful as the rejection was, it motivated the Levites to move to Jerusalem to serve God there—a change they wouldn’t have made otherwise. You may never welcome rejection, but you can trust that God will use even that to direct your life toward him.
