Folks, the company I use for my website has been making it difficult to include a picture and song, so I’m going
to use just the article each week. It may even help your busy schedule. Thanks for visiting!
I may have mentioned this to you at some other time...I can't
remember because it's been so long since I read the story. I hope I can remember enough details.
Anyway, a girl was riding a New York public
bus on a cold night when a young man got on and sat down a couple of seats ahead of her. He didn't
have a coat or other winter clothes, and what he was wearing was threadbare, and as the girl's eyes wandered again and
again to the youngster, she kept wondering what she could do to help him.
Then she wondered whether giving him money would embarrass him, and what would other people on the bus
think, and on and on she wondered whether she should just forget it or what.
Then as the bus made a stop, another young man got up from his
seat and as he passed the youngster, he...dropped his gloves in the boy's lap and walked on.
That's all...no big deal...he just saw a way to help
someone, and did it. He didn't get "credit" for his good deed...no one on the bus knew his
name, but believe me, it was recorded in God's Book.
You know, the Bible reminds that if you do a good thing to get credit here in this life, that's ALL you get.
But if you do it with no thought of repayment or medals or applause, it's recorded where it REALLY counts...with
the Lord. Think about it.
