Why We Should Evangelize.

     I have heard a lot of people saying that there's almost no use in evangelizing, because people just aren't very interested in worshiping God anymore. There are so few people that actually care, then why should we even try, if we won't get anywhere? Well, today, I'll be talking about just that. I'll be talking about why we at least need to try.

     Yesterday, in my dad's sermon, he used an illustration of starfish on a beach. There was a little boy, who was on the beach, when he saw a bunch of starfish that had been washed up on the shore. The boy started picking up the starfish, and throwing them out, back into the ocean. He threw one after the other. After a while of this, a man went up to the boy and asked him why he even tried, because he couldn't make much of a difference anyway. The boy picked up a starfish, and said, "Well, it makes a difference to this one." and threw it out into the ocean.

     A lot of times, we start thinking that no matter how many people we convert, we're not going to make much of a difference anyway. But the thing is, sometimes we only count people by the tens, or maybe even hundreds, but we should have patience, and count people one at a time, and see that even though we're not making a difference in very many people's lives, it's still some. So no matter how hard it may be, at least talking to someone about the Bible is a good start. Just changing one life is still changing a life.

     Thank you for reading. :)
