Another Perspective


Matthew 4:4 Jesus answered, "Scripture says, 'A person cannot live on bread alone but on every word that God speaks.'" I have always embraced this Scripture and seen the extreme value of God's Word in my life. But while on vacation in Detroit, a homeless man in a wheel chair gave me yet another perspective regarding God's Word. As my brother and I were driving through the city, we noticed this older gentleman begging on the street corner. It was a record setting day for heat, and our hearts went out to him. As we sat at the light, I looked for some money to give him, but my brother just opened his wallet- grabbed a large bill and just before he jumped out of the car, I gave him a pocket Bible to give the man. The man's face just lit up then, and then he did something that I did not expect. As we drove by he waved that little Bible in the air, and smiled so hard that I just felt his joy. It wasn't the money that took him there it was God's Word. Here a man begging in 102 temperatures was rejoicing over the Word! I'm thankful that I brought these extra Bibles with me....God knew. As you witness or lend a helping hand remember it's God's Word that saves, transforms, and blesses. Have as much in you and on you as possible. (-:
