Henry Ford was always the center of attention. It seemed that people could never get enough information about him or what he was doing. On one occasion he purchased a very large insurance policy. It made the headlines in a Detroit newspaper.
One of his friends, an insurance salesman, read the article and called Mr. Ford. “Why,” he asked, “didn’t you purchase the policy from me?”
“Because,” came the answer, “you didn’t ask me.”
All of us have the same needs. No doubt that God “wired us” with the same needs so we can understand one another so we would know how to help each other. We are quick to help others when we know that they have physical or emotional needs because our needs are similar to ours. It comes naturally. But the greatest need that each of us has is a spiritual need: To know Jesus Christ as Savior and enthrone Him as Lord. We must always consider this basic need.
It’s difficult for most individuals to ask for help. However, when they do, it is a good place to begin to build a relationship so that we can eventually ask life’s most important question: Do you know Jesus Christ as your Savior? If we ask, God will open the door for us to witness His love.
Prayer: Help us, Father, to be aware of the needs of others and in Your name help them when we can. But let us never forget their most important need: salvation. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
