“Why does mankind always seek for answers?” was my classmate’s response to my whining, when I expressed frustration at trying to understand a lecture on Human Anatomy. While I was taken by surprise by her question, it occurred to me that it was an open door for a conversation about the yearning in the hearts of all men.
At the beginning of my school semester, I had prayed for opportunities to share Christ with my new classmates. That day, though I was in my complaining state of mind, God graciously provided a chance for me to share the Christian perspective to life. I stopped grumbling and shared with my classmate about the loving Creator whom I believe in.
Thank God for opening my eyes to that precious opportunity. I pray I’ll always be ready and sensitive to the opportunities God gives me to share the gospel with people around me. Also, when things get difficult, I should not be whiny but still be grateful to God.
