"Why Didn't You Ask Me?"

Henry Ford was always a center of attention. It seemed that people could never get enough information about him or what he was doing. On one occasion he purchased a very large insurance policy. It made the headlines in a Detroit newspaper.
One of his friends, an insurance salesman, read the article and called Mr. Ford. “Why,” he asked, “didn’t you purchase the policy from me?”
“Because,” came the answer, “you didn’t ask me.”
All of us have the same needs. No doubt that God “wired us” the same so we could understand one another’s needs so we would know how to help each other. We are quick to help others when we know that they have physical or emotional needs. It comes naturally. But the greatest need that each of us has is a spiritual need: To know Jesus Christ as Savior. We must always be aware of the fact that everyone we see has this need that only Christ can meet.
It’s difficult for most individuals to ask for help. However, when they do, it is a good place to begin to build a relationship to ask life’s most important question: Do you know Jesus Christ as your Savior.
Prayer: Help us, Father, to be aware of the needs of others and in Your name help them when we can. But let us never forget their most important need: salvation. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Luke 14:15-24 But they are alike began to make excuses…I tell you, not one of those men who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.
