There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich. He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way.[NLT] – Luke 19:2-4
If you were to think about what people may say, will say or are saying concerning you, you may never live your life the way you were created to live it. Remember you were created for greatness, not mediocrity. Don’t concern yourself with what the crowd around you are thinking. They may think they are rendering you an important service by reminding you that believing that you are much more than you are / dreaming Big is not only for the likes of you, but that it will only end in tears. Don’t let them. Focus on the truth, focus on Jesus. He alone knows the truth.
