I was finishing up my book the other day and at the end there was an old joke. The joke was this; A man dies and finally gets to the gates of Heaven. He tells St. Peter, “God has a lot to answer for. There’s all this suffering and injustice in the world. Why didn’t He do anything about it?” To which St. Peter replies, “What a coincidence! I was just going to ask you the same thing.”
So many times we want to turn to God, or maybe a pastor, or even maybe to anybody else when it comes to fixing a problem or helping someone when it is something that we can take care of ourselves. Maybe God gave us this task, and what do we do, we try to hand it off to someone else. Take the small things in life and let God use you to be a blessing. We don’t have to go to another country to witness to someone, something as simple as holding a door open for someone can really change someones view on the world. Be that witness today, be what God wants everyone of us to be. A witness for Him.
