There is an ancient story about a botanist who was studying the heather bell found in the highlands of Scotland. While looking through his microscope at this beautiful flower, he was approached by a shepherd who asked what he was doing. Rather than trying to explain, the botanist invited the shepherd to peer through his microscope and observe for himself. When the shepherd saw the wonder of the flower, he exclaimed, “My goodness, and I have been tramping on them all my life!”
Is that the word of warning we need? Wake up. Pay attention. Look around you. You may be tramping on the heart of someone nearby. Who is the Lazarus at your gate? Clearly, we need to be aware of the physical and spiritual needs of others. Remember, “So then, as we have opportunity, let us work that which is good toward all men, and especially toward them that are of the household of the faith” (Gal. 6:10).
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
