When the World EndsDecember 20, 2008
The other night I went to dinner with my co-workers. As we were sitting around the table, my boss had the idea to ask each one of us what we would do if the world would end tomorrow. I don’t know why, but I guess this is dinner table conversation in their house. I knew what I would say, but didn’t know if I should say it. She came to me first very interested in what I had to say. “For fun or what I would actually do?” I asked her. “What would you really do?” she said. “Well, I would go out and talk to people about Jesus.” I wasn’t ashamed to say it, or even that nervous. I am just not sure if this is right way to share the gospel with everyone at my work….at the same time. I didn’t want to sound hokey, but I wanted to be honest.
This led to a further conversation about what type of Bible I use and somehow led to the Dead Sea Scrolls. I am really glad the conversation happened. I am just hoping I did more good than harm. How do you share with those at your work or with others in your life? I guess there is not one way that will be the same for everyone.
