Our 2nd door to door event for the year was scheduled for today (Saturday). There was rain in the forecast, and it looked on Friday like there was a good chance we wouldn't be able to go out this morning. After a long week, with more work still to be done today, and planning to be out of town soon, I began thinking it wouldn't be so bad if we got rained out. I was actually hoping for it. Shame on me. I didn't want to go invite people to come hear the truth of the gospel?
On the other hand, my oldest son asked my wife if people were coming over to go invite people. She said she wasn't sure because there was rain in the forecast. My son's response? "I hope it doesn't rain so we can invite people to church." There's the right heart. Your kids every have a better perspective than you? Your kids ever expose your sins and ugly motives? Mine do. May we be willing to learn from them! Thank the Lord for constantly working on us.
By the way, It didn't rain enough to stop us from going out. Pray with me that God will bring good fruit in spite of my reluctant heart?
