Matthew 11:20-24

What then is the sin of Chorazin and Bethsaida? It was a sin of a people who forgot the responsibility of privilege. To the cities of Galilee had been given a privilege, an opportunity which the other cities did not receive. We cannot condemn one who has gone wrong because of ignorance but if someone has the

chance to know the right then they are responsible. It was a sin of indifference. The cities did not attack Jesus. They just ignored him and his message. Indifference does not burn a religion to death, it freezes it to death. It does not behead it, it slowly suffocates it. We can become so wrapped up in ourselves that we fail to recognize others. If today you hear his voice harden not your hearts.
