I am a huge fan of Gigi-God's Little Princess . Today I was watching with Madison and Sean the episode where Princess Gigi had a very important announcement for her best friend Frances.
Throughout the movie she kept coming up with extravagant and "royal" ways to tell her friend that she was God's little princess too. But nothing was working out quite as she hoped. Poor Gigi became so discouraged by the end that she was ready to give up....until she learned that Frances was still waiting for her, by a window, to see what Gigi was trying to share.
And that sweet little girl decided not to give up and gave her best friend a royal tea party, as well as the best news Frances had ever heard.
Friends, in this sweet little story God reminded me to never give up on telling those we love about God's greatest gift to us all. We may not always have the right words to say. The circumstances may seem rather dire or unpleasant. We may be afraid of rejection from our closest peers.
But things don't need to be perfect in presentation. We don't need extravagant signs or messages or advertising. We don't even need "fancy" tea parties. Or fancy gifts to lure them into our churches. We aren't selling Jesus.
We are sharing Him.
"They will glorify God for your obedience to the confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with others through the proof provided by this service." 2 Corinthians 9:13 HCSB
Be bold friends!
