JR, Great Post. As a fan of Josh McDowell, he always said in this age of "tolerance" we can always share our story and NOT really be condemned. DougG

Sharing our story is such a great way to get to know people. IT is such a shock to the other person when you ask them about their "story" or "life" they usually are stumped for a while as to where to begin or what edit.

It is a great way to get to know what is really important to them. I think as they tell there story, it is very important to give them your greatest attention and to pick up on things that you may have in common. When good interaction happens, you really feel a connection with that person that may never have happened or would have taken years to develop if you had not listened to "their" story.

I can see Jesus attentively listening to all those people that he ate with and ministered to. Just listing to another persons story may be one of the best ministries we can do.
