While in seminary I discovered that a Promise Keepers convention was coming to Soldier Field in Chicago. A group of us took a commuter train downtown and then caught a cab to the stadium.

We were running late but still hoped to get good seats. I’m sure our driver, a man who spoke little English, felt intimidated as the six of us piled into his taxi, jabbering loudly. Traffic was heavy and got worse near the stadium. We slowed to a crawl. We weren’t going to get those good seats after all.

Some of us started talking about running the rest of the way to the stadium. Michael argued against that. He was concerned about the cabby; if we got out at that point, the driver would be stuck in traffic without being able to refill his taxi. He’d be losing money.

Michael then talked to the cabby about the conference we were going to, and he shared the Good News of Jesus Christ.

I don’t know if the man was affected by the message, but I do know Michael’s concern provided a base of credibility for sharing the gospel that the rest of us had overlooked.
