It was the first time she had competed in the Special Olympics. Winning the fifty-year dash was more than she could have ever expected. In her excitement, the young girl ran to her parents and shouted, "Look, Mom and Dad, I won. I won the race!"

Standing in front of the crowd, a medal for winning the race was placed around her neck. Her parents looked on with great pride, eyes filled with tears that ended streaming down their cheeks onto their swelled chests.

An official who was puzzled by their tears approached them and asked, "Is something wrong?" "No," said the mother. "We just heard our daughter speak for the first time."

It is easy for Christians to do good works and kind deeds in the name of the Lord without mentioning His name. And that is good. But we must also willingly and without hesitation boldly tell others of His redeeming grace and salvation.

Prayer: Give us courage, Father, to share Your message of love, hope and salvation with the lost. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Scripture: Psalm 107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy...
