Seeing Faith in Action
I was at the doctor’s office the other day and I thought to myself that this is taking a long time. I looked across the aisle and noticed two ladies talking to each other. One lady said to the other, “I am so sorry for you missing work to take me to the doctor.” The other lady replied, “Oh that work will be there tomorrow. It’s not running off anywhere and no one else is there to do it, so it’s ok.” I had just witnessed someone taking off work to help a frail, elderly individual. My first thought was: I wonder if this lady that works, helping the other lady in need, believes she will be honored one day when she might be in need of help by someone helping her. That is what faith in action is all about. Neighbors helping neighbors, friends helping friends, family helping family, and finally, regular citizens volunteering.
