D. L. Moody was once criticized for his methods of reaching people with the gospel. His reply was “I agree with you, I don’t like the way I do it either. Tell me how do you do it?” The woman who had criticized replied “I don’t do it.” To which Moody responded “I like my way of doing it better than your way of not doing it.”
Sometimes, Satan uses a critical spirit to keep me side-lined. I can easily see that a flyer, handout, or suggested method for sharing my faith (or even inviting a co-worker to church on Easter :-)) is old-fashioned, or new-fangled, or too off-putting….. but then this little recollection of Moody’s runs through my head. Yes, Scott, it’s less than ideal, you can certainly find things to criticize – but it’s undoubtedly better than letting the opportunity pass altogether! Amen?
Just a thought,
