Rejected
Scripture lessons: Psalm 118:19-29 & Mark 15:25-32 Rejected PDF

Please note that the following are missing in the beginning of the audio sermon:

When my youngest daughter was in middle school, she was rejected by her best friend. And then this friend, in true middle-school style, turned all her other friends against her as well. Suddenly my daughter had no one to hang out with during lunch and after school, and she was hurt and bewildered. This happened just about the same time I took on a full time job here, after being a mostly stay-at-home mom while my kids were young. I didn’t really abandon her, but I wasn’t always there in the same way, and it was a shaky time. My daughter had other problems to deal with as well, but she managed, by God’s grace. It also helped that she is attractive and smart, and had an intact family. We didn’t always know how to help her, but at least we tried.

Imagine being a young person who is rejected and bullied by your peers, and then your parents kick you out of the house.
