So Philip says to Nathanael, ‘We have found him about whom Moses and the prophets wrote, Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth.’
‘Can anything good come out of Nazareth?’
St. Nathanael of Sarcasm! Looking at a small backwater and making a snap decision without all the facts.
Sounds familiar? Do you jump to conclusions about others?
‘Never criticise someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes’, is an old saying. Billy Connolly added: ‘Because then you will be a mile away from them…..and you will have their shoes!’
Nathanael proved to be so wrong.
