A Massive Mistake

The Facebook frenzy continues to sweep the world. Originally a "hobby" of college students, Facebook is now a worldwide, competitive networking tool with millions of users.

If you're a Facebook user, you've heard of Mark Zuckerberg, the Ivy League rebel drop-out who founded the social media goldmine. Zuckerberg didn't "fit in" with his Harvard colleagues, and he didn't finish his degree, but now he's worth $17.5 billion. I'm sure Harvard is proud.

Zuckerberg became an icon, but you probably don't know Joe Green. Before the Facebook behemoth was born, Zuckerberg asked Green, one of his buddies in the dormitory, to also drop out and help begin Facebook. Green declined the invitation and decided to take the "safe route", stay at Harvard, and complete his degree. Good for him. Other than the fact that Facebook business consultants say Green's decision was a $400 million dollar mistake! Green graduated from Harvard, started his own business, and he's doing well. But he certainly hasn't replaced that $400 million.

Jesus has asked us to be His partner in Kingdom work. The work is very difficult. It takes us down the road less travelled, and it certainly isn't the most popular choice. But if we turn down His invitation, it will be a "Massive Mistake." And this mistake won't be monetary; it will be eternal, and it can't be replaced!

The offer is on the table. Jesus is waiting for an answer. Will you accept?
