Shine Ministry
"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
-Matthew 5:14-16

By Dena M. Hall
1/28/2008


(God dials his phone and holds it up to his ear)
Person: (check caller ID on phone): Heaven? I guess I'd better answer this!!(answer phone) Hello. Who is this?
God:This is your Heavenly Father calling you.
Person:(in disbelief): Who, me?
God:Yes, you.
Person: No,I'm pretty sure you have the wrong number.
God:I do not have the wrong number. I am calling you.
Person: Calling me?
God:Yes, I call everyone.
Person: Everyone?
God:Yes, everyone. You might think of this as a conference call.
Person:Well, ok Lord. But I can't talk for long. I've been really busy lately.
God: Busy with what?
Person: Well, you know, life.
God:(rolls eyes)Life? I'll show you life. (hold up sign saying “no God, No life - Know God, Know life”)
Person: Well, that's just it. I believe and I know you can give me eternal life. But I've been really out of practice lately, too. I need to work on that.
God:What do you mean work on it? I've already taken care of that for you.You just need to respond.
Person: Well, I do respond. I donate, I volunteer, I try to love my enemies…..
God:Those things are good, but I need you to recognize that I am not only your God, but I'm the God of everyone and I need you to bring them to me.
Person: But how do I do that?
God:Stay tuned and keep in touch. And remember “Reach out and touch someone!”
