Christians facing non believers 101

Someone asked a 9 yr old girl yesterday: What would you do if your brother falls in love with a non-Christian girl? (why were these people having this conversation among the children, I cannot understand hahaha but back to the most important part) but that will be a conversation for another day. Her answer was:

“ well if she is not a Christian, I will become her friend and talk to her about God.”

It blew my mind the automatic reaction and perspective she had of our existence and purpose. What am I saying? I would've come to the same conclusion she had, but only after remembering that we are all to obey God and his word that quotes:

“Finally brethren,

whatsoever things are true,

whatsoever things are honest,

whatsoever things are just,

whatsoever things are pure,

whatsoever things are lovely,

whatsoever things are of good report,

if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Philippians 4.8, The Bible”

Now what hit hard in all of those who where listening to the little girl. It was shocking because when we become adults, we forget about the basics and become as selfish as human nature allows us to be. It tendered my heart to remember; we are here to share the good news, to be the good the world needs. Not to hide ourselves from the world.

2020 has been a world changing year for all. There is something in us that has been broken, there is a lot of fear of closeness, there is a lot of distance required. All of those health requirements are at the bases of dehumanization. Although I recommend for everyone to be careful as always and wash your hands, and stay home if you are sick, I worry about the mental and spiritual health of us all. We cannot let this pandemic change our natural God given purpose of existence. We are to be the good to the world, not to protect ourselves from another human. At the end of the day, they are just like us but with different needs than those we experience.

It is a good time to be purpose driven and remember we are to share the good news and be the good the world needs to experience. Life is not about protecting our selves from others, it is about to expose ourselves to new and meaningful, purpose driven relationships.

What if we practice saying hello out loud? o waving to each other? A mask cannot take away the right to be relational.
