Up To Know Good on Wednesday
January 24, 2007
Myron and I were back in North Dakota visiting family last winter. With only a few days in town to see everyone, we were on a tight schedule. After spending one morning with my parents, we were making the short drive across town to see Grandma. We only drove three blocks when we were stopped. A young couples car was stuck in a snow bank and partially blocking traffic.
Do Good -Leave time in your schedule for a divine interruption today. Later, write down what happened and reflect on the blessings of the experience.
We saw the car in time to take a turn and avoid any delay. However, we decided to interrupt our trip. As the young man, Myron and I pushed the car, the young woman steered, and we maneuvered the car back onto the street. With a word and wave of thanks, they drove off, and we continued on to Grandmas. It would have been easy to avoid helping them, but it really only took a moment to get these strangers out of the snow bank. When we have an opportunity to help others today, lets not turn and avoid them. It may just take a moment to get them unstuck.
But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. Luke 10:33. Read this familiar story of a stranger helping someone in need.
Jesus, show me people in need today and give me the heart to stop and help.
Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.
I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
