To retract means to take something back. I have a new word for soul-winning : Re-tract - the act of giving a tract to someone at their request when they have received a tract before or someone that they know has got one from you.This word may not make Webster's, but I thought that it would describe this occurence. I will give you four examples of how this has happened to me several times. Every time I see a man that I worked with at Sam's, he will ask "What do you got for me?" He knew that I carried tracts. One time I had left my tracts in our car. I was embarrassed! I went out to the car to get a few for him and his wife. Every time I go through a certain checker's line in the West Monroe Walmart, she will ask if I have any pamphlets. At the mall there is a Muslim man that has a jewelry kiosk. A few weeks ago, I gave him a million dollar bill tract. He put it in one of his display cases for people to see. I went by there again on Saturday to show him the trillion dollar bill. He took one and asked for extras because people were requesting them! I gave him a few more and two million dollar pesos!
Yesterday, I went to the Chevron before going home. A woman that works there asked me for a Mancard for her husband and a relative. I also gave one to another man who works there. This tract has been a hit at this store!
Re-tract can also mean to tract again.
Does this make sense? We must carry tracts with us at all times if we are going to be consistent. I don't want to be empty handed the next time someone asks me for a tract. They're watching us to see how faithful we are! Have you done any re-tracting?
