4/24/10 Tyrone, 38
At a clothes store I used a MDB tract to start a conversation with Tyrone, who told me he is a Christian but wondered how he could overcome temptation. "I've been trying for most of my life, but I just can't get it right." he told me. I compared sin to a swimming pool - "Before we are believers, we just dive in without thinking about it, but when we repent we stop diving in on purpose, and we need to avoid walking close to the edge so we don't just fall in by 'accident'." We talked a while about this, and when I left we shook hands and I said "Good talkin' to you" and Tyrone said "Good talkin' to you too - more than you can know!"
