One of the sadder things that I often hear from people and especially professing Christians is; “I don’t like to read.” Upon deep meditation on this statement the Holy Spirit said to me that people should rephrase that statement and be specific about what it is that they don’t have a love for reading. He said people read what they want to. I have to agree with the Holy Spirit because He is speaking the truth.
Let’s look at a few things by way of conversations and then of course we can flip the script. Follow me in these conversations from people who don’t like to read.
“My co-worker gave me a most heart touching card today.”
“Man my pay check shows that I have been shorted eight hours!”
“The newspaper has our movie listed for 6:00 p.m.”
“We received a wedding invitation in the mail. Blank and Blank are getting hitched.”
“The bank statement shows that you withdrew $100.00 dollars out of the account last month. Why didn’t you tell me?”
“Who is it that keeps calling your phone from a 555 area code huh?”
“Hey did you see what Blank posted on face-book?”
“According to this sales ad…..”
“This letter says that the first of the year I’m getting a raise in my benefits.”

“Hmm let me see….this recipe calls for 3 eggs, a stick of butter….”
Okay…can we say Flip the Script?
