This morning I was standing out side waiting for the dogs to "do their business." I was noticing how chilly the air had become. I looked up to see the stars and the partial moon shining bright. It was about 4:45am and I saw three of the garden snails or slugs slowling creeping along the sidewalk and porch steps.
It reminded me of a great pastor/speaker Wellington Boone. At the height of the Promise Keeper Days I heard him speak at a convention. He asked are you a worm or a snake?
Let me explain: When you step on a snake what does it do? It bites back. When you step on a worm it doesn't make a sound.
As Christians how should we respond to those that "step on us?" We shouldn't bite back like a snake, we need to be like a worm. Worms get stepped on. You know what else gets stepped on? A Bridge. You see the way we respond to others needs to be like a bridge-bridging the gap and leading people to a relationship with Jesus.
