Suited Man with Head in the SandIf you had your head in the sand, would you know it? We are such busy people these days. We are bombarded with information, whether we want it or not.

I find it way too easy to cruise through my day without really noticing what is important. Am I the only one?

I have a strong suspicion that many of us, and many more in our spheres of influence, are distracted by the world; so much so, that we are missing much that God has given us eyes to see and ears to hear. Most of the time, this is a subconscious action to avoid bad news. Sometimes, it is intentional.

Most don’t want to see the picture or hear the story about the persecuted young girl. Most don’t want to think about the decline of society. Most would say that they have enough to worry about.

Let me share the truth with you – in love. What I have just described to you is a form of deception. The problem with deception: When you are deceived, you don’t know it. That is the nature of deception. Consequently, it is best to assume – or at least be suspicious – that we are being deceived in some way or another. It is one reason why we need to find true Christian community.

On the other hand, the Body of Jesus Christ has the ability to discern the times; and the responsibility to share the truth with others. People in your spheres of influence may not be able to hear, or understand, what you have been given to say; but, they will remember – when the time is right – that you knew something that they did not. They will want to know more.

Sharing the revelation we have been given is our responsibility as ambassadors of Jesus and agents of His reconciliation. It is being salt and light to a needy world. It is being instruments and weapons of righteousness for God’s kingdom. It is loving people with the truth.

Workplace Ministry Tip: So, I encourage you – for God’s sake – to force open your ears and eyes, to bravely search out the signs of the times, and to boldly share what you are hearing and seeing. Do so with everyone in your spheres of influence. I commit to do the same.

Let me know how I can help you be a Watchman for the LORD, and His people.

Humbly yours and forever His,
