“A statement is not necessarily true because it is wrapped in fine language or false because it is awkwardly expressed.”
-St. Augustine of Hippo
After discussing or debating your faith with another person do you replay the conversation in your head and see missed opportunities?!
Me too. All the time.
Despite how we think we did though, we never know what seed was planted.
It’s important to remember the we will never convince anyone. It’s not up to us!
Cut yourself some slack. Their salvation is not dependent on our ability to perfectly articulate two millennia worth of dogma and Church doctrine, or give the world’s most eloquent conversion story in one sitting.
Remember, that God is in control.
All He requires of us, is to be prepared and have the courage to speak up when the time comes.
The rest isn’t up to us.
