The other day, one of my boys, Sammy, called me with a frantic voice, “Dad, I need your help”. He had just come to a complete stop, turned, and the car hit some loose gravel which caused him to hit the guardrail.
Fortunately, this happened near a gas station. He was able to drive it to their parking and assess the damage. Not pretty. He went inside to tell the attendant that he would be leaving his car there until a wrecker came by. The attendant said, “Let me call my Uncle and see if he can help you”.
After 10 minutes this man pulled up to help my son. He spent several minutes trying to get the fender away from the tire so that it was “drive-able” to get back home. This man didn’t ask for money. Didn’t ask for a thank you, he just did it out of the kindness of his heart.
Another thing that made this so special, was that the man was deaf. He did his best to communicate with us by reading lips, and our body language. I was touched by his generosity.
Sure is good to see that there are still good people in this world. It reminds me of Ephesians 4:32, “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
