Sitting out on the curb on mom’s green and white striped tri-fold plastic lawn chair, I yelled at each passing neighbor, “Lemonade! Lemonade for sale!”
An upside-down laundry basket held the pitcher and cups. My best friend sat beside me. I was in business.
In some ways, I’ve never shut down that sticky, sloppy stand. Being an entrepreneur is fun, exciting, and hopeful. But in all my ventures so far, I’ve found one pursuit that is thrilling.
“Preach the word of God…encourage your people with good teaching,” (2 Timothy 4:2 NLT).
No, I’m not a pastor or even technically a preacher. But nothing makes my heart race more than discussing, sharing, and teaching the Word of God.
It’s why I blog. It’s why I am part of Bible Study Fellowship. It’s why I wake up early and study and listen as much as I can throughout my day. God is Life and His Word is life to me.
But now I’ve gone from blogging to gushing (I told you this was still sloppy, sticky work.) Whether you understand the joy I’m describing or are simply curious if you can find it yourself, I invite you to enjoy a free ebook Thursday, July 26th.
It will be more thirst-quenching than the neighbor kid’s lemonade. I promise, or your “money” back! And if you like it, please share some refreshment with a friend!
Q4U: How do you give refreshment to others?
