A Mercedes TV commercial a few years ago showed a Mercedes crashing into a concrete wall during a safety test? An engineer in a white lab coat walks over after the crash and kneels down to examine the damage, which is minimal. A reporter then asks the engineer about Mercedes' energy absorbing car body. After the engineer tells all about the unique design, the reporter asks him why Mercedes doesn't enforce their patent on the design, a design evidently copied by several other companies because of its success.
"The engineer then replied matter-of-factly, 'Because some things in life are too important not to share.'
How true this is. There are many things in life that fall into this 'too important not to share category.' Advances in science, in medicine, in technology. But all of these pale in importance to that of sharing the gospel."1
As Billy Graham said, "I am convinced the greatest act of love we can ever perform for people is to tell them about God's love for them in Christ."
Whenever I eat at a restaurant, I always leave one of my business witness cards with the tip, and when-ever the opportunity arrives (without being pushy), I ask the person I am visiting with if I may give them one of my cards. The card has a link to the website that has many articles that speak to the felt needs of the average person and a link to the clear gospel message, "How to Be Sure You're a Real Christian—without having to be religious."
I've never had anyone not accept the card I offered them. This is a very easy, attractive, and non-offensive way to witness for Christ.
It is true, the gospel message of Jesus Christ is far too important not to share. I encourage you to send for a package of 50 of the "Good News for USA" business witness cards to give to your friends and contacts.
In time and as we can we will make these available for other countries/places as well.
