Thought for the Day: Watch (and ask) for opportunities...more thoughts
Tuesday I examined the idea of looking for opportunities to share our faith with the world around us. While I will often be given the chance to share the hope that I have, we can also ASK God to give us these openings and then we just have to keep our eyes open to see the opportunities when they pop up.
Great! Here’s another thing I watch for:
Questions from others.
Although most everyone who knows me knows I’m a Christian, it doesn’t mean I’ve exhausted my opportunities to share my faith. When someone asks me about an element of my faith, or I see an opening in our conversation, I just share a little bit unless the person wants to keep talking. For example, someone once asked how I could forgive a person who’d treated me badly. I got to share very briefly that it was because God had forgiven me for so much as well. That was it. The person didn’t have any more questions and we moved on to another subject. But other times, a person has wanted to keep talking, and we’ve talked about God for a long time. I try to listen to what they’re interested in and just share that so I don’t come across as being pushy. The key here is to be connected to the Holy Spirit and wait on the Spirit’s prompting, not rushing, but also not being passive. More on this next week!
In His grip,
