“since I know you are part of ‘prison-ministry’, who should I give this letter to? It is from a prisoner, and I want to ensure the right people to get a hold of it.”
I realized that he was implying that the letter came to him by mistake
and that he was not the best person to handle it.
But I was left uneasy and confused...
Why would anyone, be a minister or other Christ follower,
presume the arrival of such a letter as a mistake?
That they are ‘the wrong person to handle such a letter??
Did Christ call us to help others - only when Easy & Convenient?
and in service to others.
how will we ever stretch ourselves,
Will we ever learn how much God can provide for us
if we never accept the trying tasks He brings us to?
“Was it a mistake for you to receive that letter?
Perhaps God sent it to you for a reason.
Taking 30 minutes once a month to write a letter could give a prisoner hope,
and he may come to know Christ as a result.”
yet you refrain from taking the chance,
then you are in essence denying God’s desire to bless you in your obedience.
But whatever it is, you have a mission to fulfill
and only when it is done in compliance
