Today I went to the Farmer's Market with Madi and Sean. I was enjoying the sunshine and being with my babies.
Plus, I was dreaming about strawberries. And I was intently gazing those gorgeous berries in my bag.
Then I was approached by a couple of young men.
They wanted to share Jesus with me. They were Mormon. They were very polite. They were young and were sweet to my babies.
As for me? I was snarky.
They asked me if I wanted to know about Jesus. I answered that I already knew Jesus. They asked if I would like to know more about Him.
I answered: "I probably know more about Him than you do."
They were gracious enough to keep talking politely to me and talked to my babies. They were still very nice.
I was smarting from conviction. Where God was literally beating at my heart for my attitude. Instead of sharing the hope I had within me I chose to be a smart aleck.
I apologized to them. And again they were gracious to accept my apology. We talked for a bit more and went on their way.
I feel so bad that I missed a golden opportunity to share with these young men. In front of my children no less!
So I ask the Lord's forgiveness for saying no to Him and for my hurful blunder.
So the lesson of the day Christian brothers and sisters…don't be like me.
Let the Holy Spirit lead and not the flesh.
