Matthew 18:14 14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish. (NIV)

 God isn’t willing for one soul to perish.  Neither should we be.  This means we must do all we can to be an example of God’s love to all we meet.   Quite some time ago my husband and I realized all our friends and neighbors were in church.  We didn’t socialize with anybody who wasn’t in church.  We decided we needed to get out of the salt shaker if we were going to be salt of the earth.  We signed up for square dancing lessons.  The first couple we met were church members.  We explained why we signed up and moved on to meet other couples.  Long story short, we were able to see God work in 2 couples we began socializing with as they started asking us questions and eventually giving their lives to God.  God says to leave the 99 sheep who aren’t lost and go after the one who is.  This takes prayer and time.  Let’s ask Him to put a lost soul on our heart and become salt and light to that person.
