The Good News!

We were driving through a small town when we saw a hand-lettered sign along the side of the highway that proclaimed, "Jennifer's black kitten has been found. Thank you." We didn't know who Jennifer was, and of course we had no idea her kitten had been missing. Yet my family was happy to know that her kitten was home safe.

Jennifer's family wanted the whole town to know their good news. The sign was lettered as much with love as with ink, and I'm sure we weren't the only passersby whose morning was made brighter by this unexpected proclamation.

In the same way, each of us has joyful news to share, news of a Savior who found us when we were lost and is bringing us home safe to a joyful reunion with him. Are we as quick to share this news as Jennifer was the story of her kitten? Jesus told the man whom he cleansed of many demons to proclaim his news all over town. Too many times, the greatest story of our lives doesn't merit even a figurative hand-lettered sign by the side of our road. Each one of us found by Jesus has good news to spread where we live. People in our hometowns need to know.
