On The Side of the Road

Yesterday as Brother G and I were returning from the call out.... we kept having problems with the car. There were several times when we literally were on the side of the road for a few minutes. It was making a really loud noise and clearly the transmission was having issues. At one point, we stopped at the gas station closest to the back gate of the highly secure gated community to get transmission fluid. We finally made it and the car is parked safely in the driveway.

One thing that struck me: No one, at any of the times we were stopped along side of the road with the car hood up, stopped to offer help. I submit to you that is not how God wants us to go through life... Driving past others in need of help, so wrapped up in wherever we're going or what we will be doing that we think we don't have time to get involved. He wants us to be engage in the lives of others; to get out of our comfort zones and be willing to be the good Samaritan.

If you were on the side of the road, wouldn't you want someone to stop and help you?

Please keep praying for the individuals. There are little children involved too.
