“Not Chosen”…but still working!

4 Biblical Examples of How to Deal with the Disappointment of Not Being Chosen

4 Biblical Examples:

  1. Matthias was Chosen Over Justus (Acts 1:20-26)
  2. Joshua was Chosen Over Caleb (Deuteronomy 31:8)
    • Numbers 13:22, 27-33
    • Numbers 14:6-10, 24
  3. David was Chosen Over Jonathan (1 Samuel 16:1-13)
  4. John Mark was NOT Chosen by Paul (Acts 15:36-41)

When you're not chosen...

  • Keep doing what is right.
  • Keep doing what you can do.
    • Joshua 14:6-15       
  • Support those who deserve support (no jealousy!).
    • 1 Samuel 20:30-32, 41-42
  • Remember that people do not always choose perfectly.
  • Remember that “Not Now” does not have to mean “Not Ever.”
    • 2 Timothy 4:11
    • Matthew 22:1-14
