Are We Mailmen?

Removing Excuses for Not Listening
I’d love to hear what you think on this subject. When you are going door-to-door do you cut across people’s lawns or do you always stick to the sidewalks and driveways? I’ve heard both sides from people I know and love. Personally  I feel that the principle of “give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully” (1 Timothy 5:14) is applicable. Basically we ought to avoid anything that gives people an  excuse to be diverted from or reject God’s good news. Why make them mad about their lawn being trampled or their privacy shattered when it isn’t necessary? Sure it takes longer but the exercise helps. What is your sense of what the Lord wants in this circumstance?
