Are You Observing The Wind & Letting People Perish?

"He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap." Ecclesiastes 11:4One verse that has always helped me in sharing my faith is "He that observeth the wind shall not sow" (Ecc 11:4). It is so easy to fall into the trap of judging by appearance and trying to 'play God' by deciding who is and who is not going to be interested in the Gospel. It is also easy to fear man, which "bringeth a snare" (Prov 29:25), by over reacting when someone gives us an unpleasant reaction to the Gospel, and so then being hesitant and fearful of sharing Words of Life with others. The irony of it is that many of us, were the last people one would have imagined would have been converted to Christianity, and before our conversion gave insulting reactions to the Gospel. "Salvation is of the LORD" (Jonah 2:9) and so just like God changed the heart of the Apostle Paul, He can change the heart of anyone. So with the people you meet throughout your day, don't observe the wind, just sow the Gospel!
