Familiarity Undermines

A prophet is never respected in his own hometown.- Jesus Christ

People across the world are known to look down upon their close companions or acquaintances or known people with a not-so-great background. However powerful or skilled the person may grow to be, he is always played down and mocked at.

Jesus wisely put this quote when people looked with disdain at his roots. The fact that He was a carpenter’s son made people detest his deep knowledge and insight of things elusive to the common man. Regardless of the number of miracles He performed, nobody believed in Him.

It should be noted that many prominent personalities had a humble beginning. Such a progeny can lend weight to the phrase, ‘Diamonds in the rough’. All it requires is grace of God with a bit of polishing.
