Prejudice is ugly. Prejudice cuts lot of people off from the truth.Messiah was rejected in Israel because of prejudice. Read John 7:45-52 (people of prejudice will receive nothing, but the man of vision and mission will go to the Mount of Olives (prayer mountain) to get his next mission. Read Luke 4:22-30 (when you are a visionary, the people of prejudice will try to throw you off the cliff. But if you are a visionary you will walk right through the crowd and go your way)
Nathaniel was a man of prejudice, yet he had a seeking heart. He was pre-conceived with the ‘proverb’ of Israel ‘will there be anything good come out of Nazareth?’ But when he met and listened to Jesus; he says ‘Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel."
Open your eyes and mind beyond the biases, so that you will be blessed by an acknowledgment from the Lord – You are ALETHOS; means you have no corruption, you are genuine, you are trustworthy and also ‘Well done, good and faithful.’
