I did no such thing.

Yesterday was one of my favorite days – Thanksgiving!! Josephine’s food was great as usual and the pies were to die for.Thanksgiving

But as I walked around Shepherd’s Bush yesterday, nobody seemed to be bothered. Going to work, going to school, going to shop – it was as if they didn’t even know what day it was. Most of them probably didn’t (although I did get a few “Happy Thanksgiving” greetings from British friends).

I almost wanted to stop people on the street and let them know the good news. “Today’s the day to feast! Go home to your family and friends. Eat, drink and thank God for his goodness to us all.”

But I did no such thing.

Isn’t this just like the good news of the gospel? Most people walking through life – going to work, going to school, going to shop – and never knowing the love of God in Jesus.

I’d like to stop people on the street and let them know the good news. “Today’s the day to feast! Go home to your family and friends. Eat, drink and thank God for his goodness to us all.”

But I did no such thing.

Maybe I should.
