Romans 10:14 (NASB) How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?
Who would have thought that walking a dog would allow me to share the message of the gospel? Each morning, as I walk our family dog, I get a chance to meet some of my neighbors that are up early and going to work. They have become accustomed to me and Dee walking by and saying a friendly hello as they get in their cars and drive off. Each morning, we take the same route and in doing so, we get to see the neighbors: leaving for work, delivering the morning paper, dog owners walking their dogs, early morning joggers. I have noticed that as each day passes, the friendly hellos turn into “Hey! How are you?” or “Beautiful day, isn’t it?” Some days the discussion goes a little longer to where names are exchanged and there is content to the conversation. Some even answer that things are a little tough for them. It is then that I can say that I will pray for them. Who would have thought that walking a dog could open doors for sharing Christ? Let’s not wait for them. Let’s start saying hello to our neighbors.
