“For everyone who calls on the Lord will be saved. But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?” 10:14
I browsed the library yesterday. I love the staff picks, primarily because it’s next to the coffee stand. Over half of them were some sort of self-help book. There’s a new book out called “Present Over Perfect”, about decluttering and simplifying your thought life. It had 27 holds on it. In both the secular and Christian culture, we are worried and overwhelmed people. I was telling my husband about this before bed, wondering aloud how this comes across to people outside of Christianity. We are writing books with the same topics (with better answers). We are overwhelmed, stressed and tired. Our marriage success rate sucks. Spiraling down into discouragement, he stopped me and said “everyone’s hungry, Carly. Everyone is out there looking to be fed. And there are a lot of bad restaurants. Point them towards the good food.” (I love that this man knows how to get through to me: food analogies.)
Is there someone in your life that you need to share with? Take some time today and pray for opportunities. And then when the time comes, take ‘em. For everyone who calls on the Lord will be saved, but they need to know who they’re talking to.
