(I recently shared the experience when I wore a different colored tie based on the promptings of the Spirit. The following experience reveals that I am not as righteous as some people might think.)
Over forty years ago, during my lunch break, I rushed to the bank near the DA’s Office where I worked. I was burdened by my case load, and I was in a hurry.
As I stood in the line, the still small voice of the Spirit whispered to my mind and heart. There is no doubt I was being prompted by the Spirit.
Spirit: “Talk to the man in front of you about the church.”
Spirit: “Share the gospel with the man in front of you.”
Spirit: “Just open your mouth.”
Me: “No. I’m in a hurry. I’m not in a good mood. Forget it.”
Over forty years later, this experience still haunts me.
