A family recently got lost in a seven-acre corn maze in Massachusetts. They decided to call 911, taking advantage of the local police department’s motto: “We Want to Be Bothered”.
A police officer soon showed up, and he entered the maze along with a farm manager to search for the disoriented father, mother and their two children. The family didn’t realize that they had almost found their way out. They were only 25 feet away from escaping the maze when they were found.
That’s the way it is with lost people sometimes. They know they are lost, and they cry out for help. Some of them aren’t that far away from accepting Christ as their Savior and escaping the maze of their sinful lives.
I guess the real question is—Do we want to be bothered?
“He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”—Mark 16:15-16.
