Reflection: There once was a commercial for shampoo that encouraged you to tell two friends about this great product. Then they'll tell two friends and they'll tell two friends and so on. By the end of the commercial, the tv screen was filling fast with more and more faces saying and so and so on and so on. You definitely got the impression that eventually everyone would be using that shampoo!
Psalm 105 begins by telling us to make known among the nations what (the LORD) has done. (v. 1a). I have been listening to on-line shows of a particular Christian woman speaker whose broadcasts and books have reached around the world. I may not have that sort of platform to tell a story of what God has done in my life but today I could tell two friends. Maybe they will then tell two friends their stories. And so on and so on and so on. --Ruth Gates
