A SAD - SAD World

From Exodus 20:1-10 And God spoke all these words, saying, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, ...

On a business trip to Monaco/Monte Carlo (yes someone had to go….) I tried to hand out some of the many French tracts I brought with me while I was waiting between meetings. Sadly, only very few people would take them. I tried to hand them to all age groups – but no takers. As you can see from these 2 pictures the locals and most visitors had their ‘gods’ in this earthly world. The name on this boat sums it up.

I finally decided to leave the tracts where ever I could - phone kiosks, benches, bus seats, etc. I did manage to leave over 100.

Now the GOOD NEWS. At breakfast, I noticed a big smudge on my coffee cup when Saleem, the Tunisian server gave it to me. I pointed it out and he said it was not from him - we had a good laugh. He came back a few minutes later and said it was very rare to have that kind of mistake happen and the customer laugh instead of getting angry. I told him it was because I was a new person in God through His Son Jesus. I gave him a French tract and "Why Christianity" booklet. The other servers saw this, and I had an opportunity to witness, though it was less than a minute as other customers were showing up. They all got tracts and the Gospel in a few seconds.

PLEASE pray for the lost souls in this world.
