Two weeks ago we built a wheel chair ramp for a senior adult couple near Carolina Beach. Such a sweet lady. Her husband was really wanting to make it home from rehabilitation, but couldn’t until he had a ramp. We knocked that out for them one Thursday evening.
Today, as I was walking through Wallyworld, I heard this voice behind me. I turned around and there was this frail little lady with a beam in her eyes. Wow she was happy to see me. She couldn’t wait to bring me up to speed on everything which had changed since Mr. Wisman made it home. “He’s eating more than he has in months! Got him a new seat. . . you know one of those with wheels. Oh this one is a small one so he can use it in the house! He’s every where in that thing!”
Her only complaint, “When I left home today I was scared to death! There were about a dozen lizards sunning all over it! I could barely make it down to the car!”
Can’t express how cool it is to help people. Even better when you know your efforts have made a change in someone’s life. That’s one main leg River of Leland stands on. We are here to be the hands and feet of Christ! That’s just what we do. Have you lent a hand to someone in need lately? You know, James was pretty clear about the relationship of faith to works. 🙂
James 2:17 NLT
So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.
