Pitching Your Religion
By: Rick Boxx

In a movie called “The Big Kahuna,” Danny Devito criticizes Bob, a young zealous Christian salesperson, for “pitching” his religion without really caring about people. Devito tells Bob,
“If you want to talk to somebody honestly, as a human being, ask him about his kids. Find out what his dreams are - just to find out, for no other reason. Because as soon as you lay your hands on a conversation to steer it, it's not a conversation anymore, it's a pitch. And you're not a human being, you're a marketing rep.”
Jesus taught in Matthew 7:12, “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.”
Don’t “pitch” people your faith, live it, by caring for them as a person. You might make a friend.
