Do you have occasional (or even regular) unsolicited phone calls from people who want to fix your computer problems? My parents get them several times a week and fortunately they don’t have a computer otherwise they might easily fall for the scam being perpetrated.
I’ve only had a few of those calls, and instead of my usual response of hanging up, or telling them that I’m aware of their dishonesty, I’ve realised that these phone calls give a good opportunity to tell these callers about Jesus. Last night I had my first opportunity.
The caller identified herself as being from “Windows Operating Systems”, she was calling about my computer and could she have a word with me?
“Of course “I replied cheerfully, “but could I say something first?”
Maybe my cheerful approach backfired, maybe they are too used to confusion, suspicion or hostility – she hung up before I could say anything else.
