This one is tougher than it looks but it’s part of God’s beautiful mosaic of the world.
One of the things I love most about Jesus is that He wasn’t phony – full of integrity and with many sides.
Have you ever noticed that people have incredible phony-o-meters? They’re not even sure we really need our product.
We’re automatically suspicious of salespeople because we know it’s their job. What would we think if they we doing this on their own time – would anyone really believe in their product then?
Share Jesus only when you want to. So many of us are sharing Jesus because they feel obligated to. I want to share Jesus because I love Him and because He’s done so much in my life and in the lives of those in the Church.
Do what you’re good at doing. If you are a businessperson, do business. If you’re not – don’t. If you live to serve the poor, then be a humanitarian worker. If you don’t – don’t.
Say what you believe. And tell them right up front.
