Would you like. . .

August 14, 2013

I read the other day that the most frequently asked question today was . . . “Would you like fries with your order!”  Profound, to say the least.  Now I did not read that the most important question asked today was. . . “Would you like fries with your order!”, just the most  frequently asked, although I’m sure that to some it is a very important question.  The reason the question is asked so much is that it is in reality an example of  “suggestive sales”.  Just by asking the question they are increasing the chances of you buying fries with your meal, as if your meal wouldn’t be complete without fries.
The most important question that can be asked today is the same question which held that honour 2000 years ago and it was asked over and over again, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?”  The    answer is the same now as it was when Jesus answered it then in the book of 
John 3:3 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
The answer to the other question is “No, if I’d wanted fries I would have asked for them.” Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
