“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” – John Maxwell, Theodore Roosevelt, et. al.
Today’s lesson is about gaining credibility to share the Good News of Jesus by becoming Good News in people’s lives. Many times we try to avoid the messiness of serving other people by “proclaiming” Good News from pulpits, radio, TV, webcasts, podcasts, blogs, Youtube, etc. Many of these efforts have limited credibility in people’s lives because they don’t walk along side people in need.
Don’t get me wrong – I am NOT saying that we stop these types of proclamation of the Gospel. I’m advocating that we use both good words AND good deeds.
