but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15).
As the shuttle bus driver came around to load my luggage for my trip to the airport, he smiled and asked, “What’s the logo on your shirt?” I said, “Oh, it’s for LWML, Lutheran Women’s Missionary League.”
He replied, “That’s wonderful! My mom was a Lutheran. Your purple sweatshirt just brought back a wonderful memory! What are Lutheran women doing nowadays?”
I didn’t spend my 45-minute ride looking out the window or staring at my phone. God had another plan. I had the opportunity to talk to Gary about the “reason for the hope” that is in me. Because of my studies of God’s Word and with the help of the Holy Spirit, I was prepared to remind him of the importance of a personal relationship with God.
Our LWML Store volunteers often remind us how important it is to wear LWML items and share our faith with others. Wear yours and carry your LWML items every chance you get!
