How many

Today I kind of got caught up in this thought: What if I have caused more people to decide against God than for God?

I saw someone that looked vaguely familiar, and I wondered if they had perhaps been a part of our church at some point. Then I started thinking about all the people who have come and gone. There are literally people that I have no recollection of. Which just blows my mind. Granted, I realize that just because someone leaves our church doesn't mean they have left THE church. But it might. What if I'm hitting a negative instead of a positive? More of a drain than a benefit?

I'm not looking for encouragement here, but... what if? What if the same is true of you?
