Negligence

On a warm autumn afternoon in October, 1999, 36 year old Anna Flores was walking with her three year old daughter in downtown Chicago. Without warning a window from the 29th floor of the CNA building fell toward the ground and struck Flores in the head, killing her instantly.

The tragedy was heightened a week later when CNA officials admitted they had known the window had been broken since the previous June. They said they had not replaced the broken window because of other building projects considered more of a priority.

In a public building, negligence has serious consequences.

Spiritual negligence also has great consequences. We bear a responsibility for sharing Christ with others. Paul said, "…Your blood be on your own heads! I am innocent. From now on I will go to the Gentiles” (Acts 18:6).

Look for opportunities today to tell someone about Jesus.

Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
