As the Cadillac owner walked to his car, he saw a boy about 10 years old staring intently through the windows. Wondering what he was up to, the man put his hands on the youngster’s shoulders, pulled him gently and asked him what he was doing. The boy said he was interested in cars and had read a lot about different models. He then told him many details about this particular year and body style.
After a bit, the boy asked, “Mister, how much did you pay for this car?” The man replied, “Nothing. My brother gave it to me.” The boy responded, “I wish…”, but stopped in mid-sentence. The man chuckled, “You were going to say, `I wish I had a brother like that’.” “No, I was going to say, `I wish I could be a brother like that.’ You see, sir, I have a brother who is crippled and I’d like to do a lot of things for him.” *
When was the last time joy welled up in you because you made a huge difference in someones life?
Luke 6:38 – “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
