Where does the apple fall?

Not too far from the tree.

And where do the flowers grow?

In the soil, in which they were planted.

Sometimes life seems like it will be what it will be.  What was before is now, again.

We cook and clean, do the same things, go to the same places, no real adventure, nothing ventured , nothing gained.

But what if, for one day, we lived as though it were our last on earth.  What if we live today and tomorrow every knee bows? For some this is true.  Does any sane person wake up and declare that “today I will pass on, by the hand of God”?

Each day we pass hundreds of people in the store, in traffic, in church.  Do they know Christ?  We may not be able to speak to them but we can pray for them.

But what if for one day, we risked our reputations, put aside our pride or embarrassment, and spoke Christ into the lives around us; into the lives of people we don’t even know.

Then life would no longer be mundane, life would be the greatest adventure of all. Listening to the Holy Spirit, then speaking to those he points out to us!

Take the challenge!  Take the risk! The only thing we can take to haven is friends, so tell and invite as many as you can!
