A Wise Son

Iran

In Iran, it is against the law to share the message of Jesus with Muslims. But some bold believers go to parks and other public places to tell Muslims how Jesus can save them from sin. They remember that Jesus said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel” (Mark 16:15).

A man and his wife from a city in Iran often walked up and down streets witnessing to people they saw. After a while, the man wondered if God was calling him to do more. He began praying with his Christian friends, asking God if he should quit his high-paying job to serve him.

The man’s 7-year-old son heard his father’s prayers and came to him. “Abraham was ready to give his son for God,” the boy said to his father. “You are thinking only about a job. It’s just a job.” (The story of Abraham and his son Isaac is in Genesis 22:1–14).

The man quit his job. He and another Christian, witnessing together, brought 30 people to Christ in one month.
