Shake the Dust Off Your Feet

Have you ever shared a thought you had only to have someone start a heated discussion with you or launch personal attacks at you? Or perhaps you joined a discussion somewhere else and the same sort of thing happened. I know this has happened to me many, many times. Not that I say controversial things, but it seems there are people who will disagree with you no matter what you say wherever you may go.

So what are we to do? Let our peace return to us! Don't leave your peace rest somewhere it is not appreciated or treated poorly. I know that I have left my peace many times when confronted with this sort of situation. So many times I would continue the "discussion" to keep proving my point. And then spend the next several days rehashing the conversation over and over in my head, getting more and more upset over it.

Shaking the dust from our feet. I remember walking on a beach barefoot and then putting my shoes back on without getting all the sand off first. The rest of my walk was irritating to me and I was more focused on my discomfort than I was on any other aspect of my journey. That is how it is when we don't shake the dust off our feet after these type of experiences! We end up focusing on the negative experience that is in the past rather than enjoying where we are now.
