A fearless 9 year old sets the example for group of adults!!

Give The Word had a group of adults standing around the table along with one 9 year old girl. They were all standing around listening to me talk about how Give the Word equips ministries for outreach. Once it came time for me to offe...r them the free Bibles, they were all reaching out their hands eager to take one so I gave them each a Bible and said "you're all missionaries in one way or another. This Bible is only free to take if you give it away to someone who needs one". One by one people put the Bible back saying things like "I don't know anyone who needs one, I don't think I could do that, that's your thing, I don't actually need this Bible". The nine year old girl says in front of all these people "Can you give me a few more Bibles? I have a whole bunch of people in my school who don't know who Jesus is and I would like to give these to them" WOW!!!Needless to say, we stocked her up!!
This little girl blew these adults out of the water and I'm know some of them felt the burn as they listened to her response. This defenceless little girl had the guts to face her peers in school with the Bible, subjecting herself to bullying, teasing and all that kind of stuff, but these adults AT A MISSONS/OUTREACH EVENT couldn't find a reason or the courage to give even one away. One of the adults ended up taking back their Bible. It goes to show the state we are in terms of keeping our faith to ourselves. We all say "my faith is THE most important thing in my life", but how many people outside our circle know that. The most important thing in our lives are the things we talk about the most.
We have a duty to make Him known. Approach it like a child, fearless and eager to share what Jesus has done for you, you'll be amazed what happens. Give the Word is here to equip anyone who wants to take that step of sharing their faith. We'll provide you with a Bible designed for this purpose, all you have to do is ask.

Luke 18:16
Then Jesus called for the children and said to the desciples, "let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children""
