Being The Best at What You Do is The Best Way to Bring Others to Christ

"If you have an official position, you have also certain rights which arise from the practice of that office, and certain duties. You stray from your apostolic way if you use the opportunity — or the excuse — offered by a work of zeal to leave the duties of your position unfulfilled. For you will lose that professional prestige which is your 'bait' as a 'fisher of men." St. Josemaria Escriva from The Way (372)
Often times I hear devout Christians asking this question, "How do I bring others to Christ if I am so busy with my work and personal responsibilities?" 

The great news is that the answer to this question is very simple: Be the best at what you do. Why?  Because through competence you will gain the respect of your coworkers.  By gaining the respect of your coworkers they will be more inclined to listen to you when you eventually speak about your faith.  I love Escriva's use of the word "bait."  Competence is the "bait" that will lure others into the net of Christ. 

Think about it,  ask yourself, "Am I competent enough to draw others to Christ?" If not get competent.  If yes pray daily to Christ to bring you some fish.
