Do you remember the Mercedes TV commercial several years ago that 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 replies 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 good news of the gospel. Why? Jesus said, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned” (Mk. 16:15-16). Thus, “He that winneth souls is wise” (Pro. 11:30).
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
