If you saw a friend on the side of the road with a flat tire, you would not hesitate to pull over and assist them. You would help them take the old tire off and put on the new tire. You would not just look at them and drive by. That is your friend and you would do whatever it took to get them back on the road.
Certain life events can slow anyone down and even cause them to stop and not be able to go any further. That is where you come in. Everbody is going somewhere on our journey through life and God wants you to help those who need it. You never know when you will be the one in need. It’s a sin not to help if you have it in your power to help someone else. A word of encouragement, providing a meal to a family in need, mowing a neighbor’s lawn or just calling someone up just to say ‘hello’ will go a long way to impact the life of someone who needs a friend today. We are all so busy and many of us do not even slow down long enough to see a brother or sister in need. We are so self-centered that nothing else matters but what we are going through.
Lend a hand to someone; let them know that you are willing to pull over and help them get back on the road. The Bible tells us that what we have done to the least we have done to our Lord Jesus Christ. Become the hands and feet of Jesus. You may be the light that opens their heart to receive the greatest gift of all – eternal life. We are known by our love for one another. Make a difference and remember what you sow, you will also reap.
