I tend not to believe my boys when they tell me that they’re sick. Maybe it is because they fall unusually ill whenever homework needs to get done, or when some particular task is expected that might take them away from their play time.

But when the evidence is in front of you, sometimes you just need to accept things as they are.

Have you ever considered this? That the people in your life are not actively avoiding the Gospel but are in fact dealing with a spiritual sickness that you are not aware of?

And if this is true then perhaps a different approach is necessary. Jesus told us that some spiritual woes can only be rid of through prayer and fasting. Maybe that’s what is needed from you right now. And maybe, that is how they will in God’s time receive the Good News.
