Why do we hesitate, when speaking with unbelievers, to share the good news of what Christ has done for mankind? I believe it’s because we fear rejection. We fear what others will think of us. If asked, we would emphatically say we’re not afraid of people rejecting us if they learn we’re a Christian. Yet we don’t explain the gospel. Why?
Deep inside we fear not being well thought of. We fear being ridiculed, or being considered pushy or senseless or weird. We’re afraid we’ll fall over our words and look like an idiot. We fear being the object of scorn. We don’t share because we want to maintain the safety and security we feel in the presence of others. But do we value our feelings of security more than the soul of another? I am ashamed to admit I have many times preferred feeling safe and secure—feeling accepted and valued—over being about my Father’s business. How utterly self-centered of me.
Lord, help me care less about my feelings of security than about the eternal resting place of those in my company.
How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things! Romans 10:15

Audio books can be a real life-saver. We all know the homeschool journey is harder on some days than on others. When tears are flowing and the kids are slow as molasses, just getting through the three R’s can be a huge feat.
