Be Prepared To Preach The Word All The Time

Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season.
Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
-2 Timothy 4:2-

A non-Christian happens to be so interested in Bible stories.
Sometimes when he sees me reading the Bible, he will approach me and say “Story telling time.”
So far I have shared with him the story of a few kings and prophets in the Old Testament.

Sometimes due to work, I feel reluctant to share the story with him.
One time telling may take up 1 hour of time.
No, it is never a debate. It is simply a discussion of their lives and what we can learn.

No good. I must not give in to reluctance.
I must always share the word with him whenever there is chance.
Even when I feel reluctant, I must force myself to obey biblical commandment above.

A reminder to self: my friend’s eternity is at stake here.
