When you went to a good restaurant recently, did you notice that the main course was carefully placed on the plate? How about a really good website? Often, when we find one that we really like, it's look is important to our assessment.

Now we draw together this reality of life and consider our witness as a regular course of who we are. Are we presentable? Oh, you say it depends upon our audience. Sure. I can see that. Now, are you presentable? The success might be found in the receptivity.

My point is that we cannot just leave our witness up to chance when God has given us the good sense to sort out the audience and make necessary adjustments. Does this make us less than authentic? I think not. It makes us effective.

"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him." Colossians 3:17 KJV

2 Timothy 2:15-this has been my war cry to the young people in our corps and of the division! (I illustrated the point at a Youth Praise by melting candy bars in diapers, and offering them a "taste") Presentation is everything!!!!! (A Snickers bar is just not the same all squishy in a Pamper!)
Are we correctly handling the truth? Are we doing our best to present ourselves as one aproved? Are we a worker- who is not ashamed? I pray it is so- for me, at least!

Hey- we miss you over here! Jimmy keeps saying how much he would love to go to Australia- but those pesky poisonous snakes and spiders freak him out too much! I keep telling him to buy a snake-bite kit and some OFF, and have a little faith!

Love to you and your wonderful wife!!!
