This weekend, all across America, there will be seemingly endless parties and celebrations as Summer officially kicks into high gear. For many it will be an awesomely fun time of BBQ, jet skiing, and myriad other enjoyments. But there is another side to Memorial Day Weekend, too.
The National Safety Council today released its estimates of fatalities from traffic crashes for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday weekend, beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 22, and ending at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 25. The Council estimates 383 traffic fatalities and another 46,300 medically consulted injuries may occur over the traditional summer kick-off weekend from motor vehicle collisions. Total traffic fatalities for May 2015 are estimated to total 3,073.
That’s right, every year at this time, nearly 400 souls will step off of Planet Earth and step into Eternity. Many of them will be lost people who will burn forever in Hell. What stands between them and Hell is you, Christian, armed with a pocketful of gospel tracts and a heart willing to obey the command of Jesus Christ to go into all the world with the gospel.
NTEB Gospel Tracts are street-tested and street-proven to be attention getting and effective in delivering the salvation message of the gospel. Nearly 100,000 have been ordered and delivered around the world in just the past few months. We hand them out every Saturday afternoon on St. George Street in Saint Augustine, FL. People love to receive them, and many pray for salvation.
So this weekend, as you check to make sure you’ve remembered to pack a cooler and some sunscreen, don’t forget the most important thing of all – your supply of gospel tracts. Maybe the Lord will put you in the path of one of the 400 who will be meeting Him this weekend. You never know, so be prepared.
