Think for a moment on this excerpt from “Master, The Tempest is Raging”-By Mary Ann Baker: “Master, the tempest is raging! The billows are tossing high! The sky is o’ershadowed with blackness, no shelter or help is nigh: “Carest Thou not that we perish?” How canst Thou lie asleep, when each moment so madly is threat’ning a grave in the angry deep?” Now, consider this excerpt from Psalm 142:4. The writer lamented: “….no man cared for my soul!” I Know that lost souls are not in mind here, but the concern expressed could easily be said about “lost” people. If they know it, or if they don’t, they are headed for eternal and severe danger. So the question that we need to ask ourselves is: “Do I care?” We who know Jesus would probably be able to honestly say: “I care.” The next question merits real heart searching? “Do I care enough?” A great many of us, thoroughly searching our hearts would have to admit: “No! I don’t.” Why? Because our distractions and activities keep us too occupied to do much of anything to reach out to others about their need. Add to this, Satan gladly provides (free of charge) a “warehouse of excuses” as to why we can’t do much about the need. Some of these excuses seem very valid. Nevertheless, we are still charged to witness! Selah! How can we come to care enough to overcome the excuses and actually witness? Let’s look at that tomorrow, God willing! Ron
