Wisdom from the Psalms 10/14

October 14Psalm 122:1I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Mike and Jerry were neighbors for about five months when one day Jerry asked Mike to play golf with him on a bright, beautiful Sunday morning. Mike graciously declined, asking for a raincheck. Jerry invited Mike on a couple more Sundays, but Mike always refused. Jerry asked him why, and Mike told him that he went to church. After that, Jerry didn’t ask again, on Sunday or any other day of the week. Mike finally asked Jerry why, and he replied, “I asked you to go with me three times to do something that was really important to me, but you never once asked me to go to church with you.” Mike never thought that Jerry might like to go to church. Too often we shy away from asking people because we don’t want to seem pushy. But the Lord asks that we work diligently to bring people to Him. Often people do not go to church simply because they feel awkward and have never been asked. Share your faith. Ask someone to church with you. You never know what might happen. Prayer: Open my eyes to the needs of others. Help me to not think I know people’s minds before I ask. Be patient with me as I learn to share my faith with others. Amen
