THE LIVING BIBLE

His name is Tim. He has wild hair, wears a T-shirt with holes in it,
jeans and no shoes. This was literally his wardrobe for his entire
four years of college. He is brilliant. Kind of profound and very,
very bright. He became a Christian while attending college.

Across the street from the campus is a well-dressed, very
conservative church. They want to develop a ministry to the
students but are not sure how to go about it. One day Tim decides
to go there. He walks in with no shoes, jeans, his T-shirt and wild
hair. The service has already started, so Tim starts down the aisle
looking for a seat.

The church is completely packed and he can't find a seat. By now,
people are really looking a bit uncomfortable, but no one says
anything. Tim gets closer and closer and closer to the pulpit, and
when he realizes there are no seats, he just squats down right on
the carpet. By now the people are really uptight, and the tension
in the air is thick.

About this time, the minister realizes that from way at the back
of the church, a deacon is slowly making his way toward Tim.

Now the deacon is in his eighties, has silver-gray hair and a
three-piece suit. A godly man, very elegant, very dignified, very
courtly. He walks with a cane and, as he starts walking toward
this boy, everyone is saying to themselves that you can't blame
him for what he's going to do.

How can you expect a man of his age and of his background to
understand some college kid on the floor? It takes a long time
for the man to reach the boy. The church is utterly silent except
for the clicking of the man's cane. All eyes are focused on him.

You can't even hear anyone breathing. The minister can't even
preach the sermon until the deacon does what he has to do.

And now they see this elderly man drop his cane on the floor.
With great difficulty, he lowers himself and sits down next to Tim
and worships with him so he won't be alone.

Everyone chokes up with emotion...

When the minister gains control, he says, "What I'm about to
preach, you will never remember. What you have just seen, you will
never forget."

'Be careful how you live. You may be the only Bible some people will ever read!'

I asked the Lord to bless you
As I prayed for you today.
To guide you and protect you
As you go along your way.
His love is always with you,
His promises are true,
And when we give Him all our cares,
You know He will see us through.


Only if you feel ned to, pass this to
People you want God to Bless.
.....I DID..!

Wow, that's beautiful Don, thanks. Let us pass it on..That's the way how Jesus would love the helpless and the poor. The Deacon did his duty to the Lord. I would do the same.
Perhaps if you meet someone like this, it might be Jesus who is trying to show you that the poor is loved more than those who have enough.

Luke 6:20-21
Then he looked up at his disciples and said: ‘Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.

And for us if we worship in the church, find lonely person and alone, or elderly person struggling to get thru. Put more attention to them. Assist them find a place to sit, and often times, talk to them and welcome them. We have a number of various kinds of helpless people in the Catholic Church. I have served the church for many years, and I paid more attention to the poor, the disabled, and the elderly. The church is the house of God, and all are welcome, to worship, and celebrate the love of God.
