I have finished the work you gave me to do.
Warren Buffett, one of the world’s wealthiest humans, applied for admission to Harvard Business School in 1950 but was turned down. He said that rejection turned out to be one of the best things that ever happened to him—for he met his mentor and discovered his passion at Columbia University.
Jesus was rejected by his hometown (Mt 13:57), by many of his disciples (Jn 6:66), and by his brothers (Jn 7:5).
But Jesus was clear about his mission and rejected the rejections. So, at the end, he could say, “Father, I have finished the work you gave me to do.”
