    Hello Shirley,

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on “our witness.” This is something that really helps me to understand what “losing your witness” means.

    This helps me a lot, especially the example that you give with “sitting quietly” if we feel like we need to inject curse words to make our conversation more interesting. I feel like this also applies to me for vulgar jokes or opinionated attitude injected in conversations.

    I have been a “secret Christian” for many years because I did not want to be hypocritical about what I do vs. what I say I am. And recently, I have felt that God has brought that to my attention and He is helping me to eradicate it.
    This had a lot to do with my harsh upbringing and influences; I retreated to humor but developed a knack for witty and funny, but often vulgar and rude jokes in my conversations. Of course, everyone would laugh, but it was usually non-believers and I am coming to realize more and more that is not something to help further the kingdom.

    So, again your blog is really helpful to me and encouraging, to better understand what “my whitness” means.

    After reading this my prayer is that the personality traits and appreciation for humor that God has given me, will be used to help further his Kingdom and edify others.

    Thank you again Shirley!
