There once a lady that was trying to figure out if she wanted to
become a Christian. She started a pros and cons list by drawing a
line down the center of a piece of paper. She gingerly wrote PROS on
one side and CONS on the other side. She knew that her life was
going to change with this important decision.
Next, she contemplated what was a positive aspect of being a
Christian. She looked up at the ceiling and sighed. And just as
lightning came down from Heaven, she wrote: “when I die I will go to
a beautiful place called Heaven”. Now, that she had that on that
side she thought what would be a negative of being a Christian.
Again she pondered at that question then wrote: “leaving my loved
ones and family behind that had not made that choice”. The woman
became perplexed as she thought in her heart about this very
She continued to write down the positives of choosing Christ
and then, the negatives. She looked down at her paper and could
think of no other opposites. And she saw to her amazement that her
list of cons were only a few.And she knew at that very moment that
the unseen hand of God had led to her to a new life.
She bowed her head humbly and asked Jesus to come in her life
that very moment. She felt so relieved that she did not let the
negative side win in her mind and soul. And she felt confident that
she would do all that God told her about telling her family about Him
and letting them have the choice to accept Him.
