Many years ago I heard an interesting story that made me think.
When the Beatles were at the top of their success in the 60’s, they were invited to play at the Buckingham Palace, for the royal family.
Knowing they would meet Prince Charles, who was a few years younger than they were, they had a plan:
They stuffed some drugs inside their boots, so if they had the right opportunity they would pass it to the young prince.
I never heard if that indeed happened, but I can just imagine if they had been caught trying to do that. I don’t believe Paul would be Sir Paul McCartney today.
Nevertheless the lesson is there:
The Fab 4 had something they thought was great, and they wanted to share it. Even at great risk.
They would have loved to offer the opportunity to Charles to have the great time they had with the drugs.
Don’t we have something greater? We have God’s recipe for an eternal life in His presence. That’s better than any high one can get with drugs (and it lasts much longer).
Are we sharing it, so other people can have the same experience of a relationship with the Lord?
There is risk of rejection, there is risk of being politically incorrect, maybe soon there will be even the risk of being illegal. Shouldn’t we be more eager to share our faith?
