Shaking the Dust from Your Feet

  Matthew 10:14
And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

Luke 10:11
Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

Acts 13:51
But they shook off the dust of their feet against them and came unto Iconium.

"Shaking the dust from your feet" is a Bible Lands saying which means to shake off the animosity and bitter feelings which arose between another and you as you leave, so that you may go on your way with your heart full of peace and joy, as a believer should. You must never take with you the dust of hatred and resentment; shake it off and leave it behind so you may continue with a pure heart.
