Careful When Gathering Sticks


A young man wondered if he should go to a Bible school. His business was carpet-cleaning. Because he traveled around, he personally witnessed to six or seven people each day. His future at a mission school would mean that he would spend six months with Christians. Then he would go out and do mission work ... if he still had a mind to. Charles Spurgeon said, "Be careful when you are picking up sticks, that your fire doesn't go out." So if you are considering going to a Bible school, make sure they have an emphasis on reaching out to the world, so that you will end up with more zeal than when you enrolled. Better still, get into a lifestyle where you will be schooled by regularly rubbing shoulders with the world. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
