I don’t need to be sprayed with cologne while I am walking in the mall. I already smell like sandalwood and a forgotten beach day.
But sometimes, I’ll get approached by mall kiosk salespeople.
They want to sell me a hair braid kit for my wife or a vacation rental or a small helicopter that will break when I make eye contact with it at home.
It’s a problem, albeit a small one.
How does my friend Wendy deal with it?
She tells the salespeople, “I’ll stop and listen to your pitch if, at the end of it, I can tell you about Jesus.”
That my friends is the very definition of win-win.
If they say “no thanks,” then you don’t get blasted with lavender body rinse.
If they say “yes,” then you get to share about Jesus.
And it’s so unexpected, that it usually starts some really interesting conversations.
Next time you are at the mall and don’t need a knock off pillow pet, do what Wendy does.
I promise your day won’t be boring.
