St. Francis of Assisi had this to say about sharing the Gospel…
“Preach the Gospel at all times and, when necessary, use words.”
In the church, we put a lot of emphasis on sharing our faith. However, many times, our actions speak louder than our words. After all… who is our audience???
… The waitress we chewed out for getting our order wrong at a restaurant;
… The clerk we belittled for an honest mistake;
… The guy at work who saw us wasting company time;
… The new next-door neighbor we never had time to welcome to the neighborhood.
Sometimes we may struggle with the right thing to say when discussing our faith. Maybe we should first make sure that our actions reflect the love of God before we open our mouths.
Here’s a challenge for you: Share God’s love with someone in your life today, and, if necessary, use words.
