My grandfather served as the County Assessor of Wetzel County, West Virginia for nearly 20 years. I remember an occasion when I was just a little boy, that my Granddad loaded me up in his car and took me down to the courthouse. I remember it being quite a large and impressive building. When we got inside, do you know what we did? My granddad took me from office to office to “show off” his grandson to all his co-workers.
Question — What seminar do grandparents have to attend to train them to talk about their grandchildren?
You know the answer to that question. There is no seminar. Some things just don’t need to be taught. A grandfather “showing-off” his grandson doesn’t require a seminar or training session. It just comes naturally.
If that’s the case, and it is, then why do we offer “a lack of training” as an excuse for not going forth and “bragging on Jesus?” We don’t need special training to speak a good word for Jesus, we just need greater love! Give it some thought.
