Just back from the gym! It’s been a rather hectic week – well behind on preparation. Yet, it has also been the best personal witnessing week for a few months. Had two or three long chats with total strangers who have been stopping me to ask questions.
Tonight, in the sauna, however, really ‘takes the biscuit’ (an Irish term that means gets first prize)! Let me be very brief indeed.
Three strangers (man & wife and another young man in his early twenties) plus me in the Sauna.
Young man says to us ‘as older people, what advice can you give me?’ You are probably as shocked by that as I was.
After hearing the fairly bland response of the older man, I said ‘I’ve never been asked that question before by a younger person: here’s three things I would say to you.’
The first is…….
The second is…….
The third is…….
Three answers, six words, for maximum impact (by the grace of God, with the help of the Spirit). I’ll probably never meet the young man again!
What would you have said?
