I just wanted to share this short story with you. It happened very quickly but it has stuck with me...maybe because it all seemed so innocent and Almighty at the same time...
My kids and I were hanging out with a couple of other children. I know the 2 other children don't go to church. We were all outside and one of the kids remarked about how nice something looked. One of my kids said simply - God made it. God made everything. One of the other kids said - God didn't make everything. To which one of my children replied - Yes He did. The other child thought for a second and said - He didn't make ME. My children very calmly said, "Yes He did. God made all of us."
Boom. End of discussion. Nothing else was said. The other two children were lost in thought after that and it didn't come up again. It didn't need to - the seed was planted. These 2 children who know nothing about God were just handed the key to His unfailing love by two unsuspecting and unprepared children. They didn't argue, they didn't yell, they didn't push anything on each other...they simply spoke from their heart and let it go.
May we all be able to share our love for God with others as children do - with no ulterior motive or agenda, with the willingness to share with anyone, anytime and with the acceptance that we are not in control...but God is. Don't worry that you're not prepared, that you're not eloquent, that you're not dressed properly or look your best...God is. We are just God's instruments.
