Chuck Swindoll used to say: “Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we respond to it.” I believe he was point on! A young couple, she was pregnant, showed up at worship this summer in old dirty clothes. We welcomed them and when they explained they were homeless and had spent the night in a culvert beneath the road, we went into action. They were put up in a local motel for a week, bought new clothes, and generously fed. I explained that if they would put forth the effort to improve themselves, we would help them find a job, an apartment and new lives and a future as Christians. After that Sunday we never saw them again, but I did sadly notice that the culvert was once again occupied. This is Just-A-Minute
