There are many moments in our lives when we think and ask ourselves “Why is this happening to me?” It seems to be a natural thing. Usually, we do not ask that same question to ourselves when everything is going well. When the grass is greener from our side and not from our neighbor’s side. So yes, it might be the case that, at that moment, we are having a bad day.
Do you know who was Isaac Asimov? He was an American writer and biochemist, highly successful in the science and science fiction areas. If you have been able to watch movies about robots, you might recall the “three Laws of Robotics”. He is the father of those. But he was also an atheist.
Have you ever consider that, for those in the First Century, their time was the modern time? Indeed it was. It was their time, their culture, their language, their tools. They used everything they had available to proclaim the message of God.

Jesus said, “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest” (Matthew 9:37-38). Dear reader, the job posting is open, but, you must be in the building.
