"I don't care what you're going through. When God calls you to help, you're supposed to help...period. When He stops you and tells you to help.. you're supposed to help."
Bilal Quintyne of Smyrna, Ga., was recently headed out for a morning jog with a friend, when he saw a woman in an electric wheelchair stranded on the side of the main road. Her chair’s engine had died, leaving one of her wheels dug into the busy street and the other planted on the sidewalk.
She asked if I could call for help and I said, ‘I’m in good shape. Where is your house? I’ll take you myself,’” Quintyne, tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
The walk took about 30 minutes, and while they didn't talk much on the way, the father of two asked the woman where she was headed in the first place.
“When I learned she was on her way to the grocery store, I offered to go food shopping for her, but she wouldn’t allow me,” She was crying, very grateful and said that many people had driven by without stopping to help. God blessed me with an able body. So WE pulled her home."
The power of a kindness shown or a kindness received.
There’s no telling how it can impact a life.
Has God given you the opportunity to show kindness to someone and it blessed you maybe even more than it did them?
Could be YOU were the one who was shown kindness when you really needed some help.
These are the "when the rubber meets the road" moments that add reality, meaning, and adventure to our faith!
"Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven."
(Matthew 5:16) NASB
