“A Christian who is not evangelizing is a Christian on early retirement.” — unknown
There can be a fine line between being helpful and being obnoxious.
I often find people who don’t know me, and they start in on all the benefits of believing in God, and all the pitfalls of not, a little pushy.
And it is even realistic to describe my feeling as uncomfortable.
I pray that jeffnoel.org never makes anyone feel like that. The beginning quote here reminded me that it’s quite possible to have blind spots.
Does anyone know a good Optometrist?
In 1973, I remember hearing a Lynn Anderson song with the lyrics, “I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden.”
And while writing five blogs a day, I never want to promise you any thing that can’t be delivered to you.
The Tiger Woods saga was noteworthy at jeff noel.org because it challenged all of us to decide one way or another. (And even if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice)
A jeffnoel.org reader emailed a valuable insight – none of us are in a position to forgive Tiger Woods. God and Tiger must handle this.
However, a point you may want to consider – the one that came immediately to mind – as you live your daily life, is this:
God will not withhold forgiveness to anyone who asks to be forgiven.
And if this is so, who is it in our lives that needs to be forgiven, but we have never offered them hope and encouragement?
