Here’s a comment posted by Jessica Smith on the post below, “Day of Ruin”, about the proper perspective we need to have when reaching out to the lost:
This is an issue I stuggle with most when evangelizing strangers: ruining their day. Last week I approached two men working on an old car, laughing and having a great time in the beautiful sunshine. As I walked toward them I almost stopped myself because they were having such a great time, [and] I knew I would kill that [great time] by telling them they were going to hell. As it turned out, one of them was [going to Hell] and frankly, he didn’t care. I didn’t want to ruin their day or their mood, but I reminded myself this was more serious than a bad day. This was about a bad eternity! The “people-pleaser” in me needs to get over it.
What about the rest of you? How do you feel about ruining someone’s day?
