Show and Tell
by PamFord Davis

Do you remember the fascination and excitement of "show and tell" in elementary school? Class members were given the opportunity to show items or tell something special to members of the class. I think the teachers may have enjoyed it as much as we did! You never can guess what children will come up with next. Art Linkletter proved that time after time! I recall my biggest piece of news shared in "show and tell." At age seven I stood before the class to announce the birth of my baby brother Gary. That made headlines in our family; after four daughters my parents finally got their boy!

Our lives are to be a witness for Christ both by showing and telling. A verbal testimony quickly falls on deaf ears if our life does not ring true. On resurrection morning an angel told the women at the empty tomb they had a story to share. "But go, tell His disciples- and Peter-that He is going before you into Galilee, there you will see Him, as He said to you,
(Mark 16:7 NKJ)." Jesus wanted to arrange a meeting with the disciples and the women were acting as the agents to set it up! Tell the good news; Jesus lives and loves!
