Massive Evangelism Failure At Countdown Supermarket
The guy in front of me at check out was asked by the teller if he had a ‘One Card’. If you have one of these loyalty cards, the supermarket gives a small discount on purchases.
He replied he didn’t have one.
I was listening to the conversation so I said ‘Do you want to use my one?’
His eyes lit up and jumped at the idea.
I saved him 70 cents. Whoopee!
He was happy. Smiling, he thanked me. I knew what I had done was ploughed his heart with a good work.
Then I went to give him a www.biblein11.com card in my wallet…but there was none there! Grrrrrrr……
What a waste of a great opportunity.
What’s the lesson? Be prepared!
I have since filled up my wallet again with cards ready for these spontaneous opportunities to further the Great Commission.
