Shake Your Garments

Paul went to the synagogue every Sabbath in Corinth and persuaded some of the worshipers, but some Jews opposed him. He then took action against them, “But when they opposed him and blasphemed, he shook his garments and said to them, ‘Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean. From now on I will go to the Gentiles'” (Acts 18:6).
Whatever of them might be still clinging to him, if even the dust that had been around the opposers, Paul shook it from himself and let them know that they stood guilty of rejecting Jesus as the Christ. The time had arrived in Corinth for Paul to go beyond the synagogue and teach those not so familiar with the Law and the Prophets.
We should teach people as long as we can, but the time arrives with some people that we have to walk away from them and find others to teach. Pray to God that you will know the time when to take such action.
