How would you answer this?
A young lady was sunbathing on a beach when a little boy in his swimming trunks, carrying a towel, came up to her and asked, “Do you believe in God?”
She was surprised by the question but replied, “Why yes, I do.”
Then he asked her, “Do you go to church every Sunday?”
Again, her answer was, “Yes!”
He then asked her, “Do you read your Bible and pray every day?”
Again she said, “Yes!”
By now, the young lady’s curiosity was very much aroused.
The little boy sighed with relief and asked, “Will you hold my money while I go swimming?”
This little boy believed that if someone professed to being a Christian, then there was a certain reliable character that came with such a profession. In fact, he was depending on it.
So are others, and some of those other people are in your life. They believe that, because you profess to follow Christ, they can rely on a Christlike character from you. They need that from you!
What are you giving them?
