In Such A Way

On a daily basis, a lady with a sick pet dog tried to force a tablespoon of medicine down its throat, but the dog would always resist and pull away.  One day she accidentally knocked over the bottle and the medicine spilled all over the floor.  To her surprise, the dog went over to the puddle and started lapping it up! The dog hadn’t been resisting the medicine.  It was resisting the owner’s method in which she forced the liquid down its throat. 


 Jesus said, “Let your let shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Matt. 5:16). 


 In such a way” means that we use the right method. The best way to understand the right way is to study how the Savior interacted with people while He was on earth. After that study, journey with the Apostle Paul as he traveled the old world. Having contemplated these approaches, take part in the great commission.


Think about it.
