Be honest: many of us would quit our jobs, and become full time evangelists. Why then, don’t we share Him because of the unconditional love that He has for each one of us?
This is legit.
I am not going to lie, but my first reaction was, well duh! Then I realized wow, how shallow of me. I would put my own personal desire for money over the salvation of another. I would not hesitate to spread the Good News for a thousand dollars, but I would hesistate or opt out when the money was not involved. I am not afraid to admit that was my first answer. Last night I was reading Romans 1. Paul was so excited to share the Good News to Rome. Was he in it for fame or for money? No, he was in it to help save lives. That is how I want to look at sharing God’s word. Not with an attitude of “how will it benefit me” but rather a “how will this help others” kind of attittude.
