Jesus chooses 72 new disciples.
He tells them to go ahead of Him, to prepare the way.
“Preparing the way” means to love people. To heal. To proclaim the coming “kingdom of God” (Jesus).
Some will accept the message. Eat and drink whatever they provide.
Some will reject them. When that happens, on your way out of town, shake the dust off your shoes, and tell them that what happened to Sodom was nothing compared to what is heading their way because of the rejection.
Implications for today?
