It was a lifesaver, the day I discovered you can't change anybody.
A mentor once said, "I almost died trying to change people. But I found out much later, that people's 'light bulbs' - epiphany, comes on at different intervals. Some the first day they heard, another a week after, others several months later, while certain folks maybe decades before the moment of self-realization done on them."
I guess that is why Jesus never argued with the Pharisees. For knowledge will always govern ignorance.
So learn to leave it at what was advised and move on to more productive ventures; because if you weren't needed in Capernaum, there maybe great need for you in Samaria!
