“Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life, or do you want to come with me and change the world?” What Steve Jobs said to Pepsi executive John Sculley to lure him to Apple.
Jesus asks you, “Do you want to chase the world’s riches for the rest of your life, or do you want to come with me and find lost sheep?”
Does every single good deed you do have to put a dent in the world? Is the only purpose of your job to affect billions of people? Is that the ultimate criteria for a fulfilling career and life?
The problem is the perspective towards God’s command to love your neighbor and your willingness to obey God. The way you look at it and the value you place on your neighbor.
So next time you feel inadequate by the thought that you can’t witness for Christ, remind yourself that there are no minor efforts in God’s sight. Who knows, your small and insignificant good-neighbor deed can end up influencing someone indirectly to accept Christ as their Savior.
Do something for God. Be inspired by God’s desire for you to pursue your neighbor and introduce them to Jesus. Christians have a worthy assignment, even if you only reach one lost person.
