Paying a High Cost

Rick Mattson Uncategorized 2 Comments

An old friend stopped returning my phone calls.

My intuition, which is accurate 3/4 of the time, tells me that my clumsy attempts to represent Christ to my old friend finally put him off.

Perhaps had I been more straight-forward — a known quantity, things would be different.

Perhaps had I been more sensitive — not forcing the conversation, we’d still be talking.

I don’t know.

What I do know is that being rejected — in this case with no explanation — is tough to swallow. And the other thing I know is that if you and I choose to represent Christ with our lives (imperfectly, to be sure) we will, at times, pay a steep price.
