“Jason, you know that no one is going to read your blog. No one is going to change their path, because of your blog. You’re never going to get a ton of readers.”
Thank you. Let me tell you a story. It’s a riff on a story CH Spurgeon told. He had some of the best stories, but let me tell you one in my own way.
An artist had a shop on a busy street in the town square. There was a cool fountain outside his shop. As a courtesy he hung an old tin cup from a chain by the found. He thought it would welcomed by travelers.
A few days later one of his friends came to visit. He railed on the old man for putting such a tin cup on a such a general link chain. The cup was battered, the chain was short. No one of status, no one of regal status would dare use that tin cup. The visitor told his friend the artist that only the thirsty would worry about such an uninviting old, tin cup.
The artist looked up at his friend and asked a simple question.
“Are thirsty travelers refreshed?”
“Oh, yes, those who are parched and really thirsty are drinking. But no people of renown.”
“Then, the cup is doing it’s job. Only the thirsty will drink of that fountain. If they’re thirsty and requiring refreshment then the look of the cup will not bother them. The people of renown aren’t thirsty. That cup is for those who know they’re thirsty.”
Dear Woke Christian,
I’m writing this because I want to keep pointing you to the Fountain that not only can give you refreshment in this day, but in eternity as well. Don’t let the flayouw of the “tin cup” cause you to reject the wonder water that can give you life. Turn from your false teaching and come to fountain for Life.
