Most people have heard of Warren Buffet. Mr. Buffet is not only among the world’s wealthiest individuals, but he’s also established himself as one of the biggest philanthropists by giving away over $30 billion.
Being the most successful investor of all time obviously seems complicated, but Mr. Buffett has stated, “There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult.”
Mr. Buffet’s statement apples to many areas of life. While he was speaking of investing, the concept can be applied to spiritual things as well.
Take the statement that people can make easy things difficult and apply it to evangelism. Many times, Christians have made evangelism more difficult that it is. People can develop systems, procedures, checklists and techniques, but many times the greatest results are found in the easiest ways.
Do you remember John chapter 1?
In John chapter 1 a personal invitation was given to go and see Jesus. There was no class or checklist, it was the simple passion that someone had as they met Jesus.
Have you mentioned Jesus to anyone this week? Have you, out of your passion for Christ, shared with them the gospel?
Let’s not get so weighted down with techniques that we forget to speak from our hearts about Jesus.
Just some thoughts,
