CHORAZIN: Seeing isn’t always believing

My husband and I had talked about visiting Israel for several years.  Finally we decide this is the year.  We sign up for the Precept Ministries Study Tour from May 1-17.  We work hard to get ready for the trip-packing, getting things at home taken care of, and then there is the really long flight over to Israel.  But at last we are there and we are so excited for the study tour to begin.

The morning of DAY 1, we visit an area covered with black rocks.

These are believed to be the remains of Chorazin a city in the Galilee region that Jesus spoke about in Matthew 11:12

Woe to you, Chorazin!  Woe to you, Bethsaida!  For if the miracles had occurred in Tyre and Sidon which occurred in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

Chorazin was located only about 2 miles from Capernaum, Jesus’ own city.  Could it be that Jesus and / or his disciples performed miracles there and the people were skeptical, unimpressed or just too busy with their lives to care.

It makes me wonder is God at work around me and I fail to notice? Do I acknowledge His working in my life or am I too busy to care??
