Flash Fun Q: What were the last words of Jesus on the cross?
Vol. 44 | 1-18-17

Every time a beggar approaches with a story and inevitable punchline, my standard reply is: "I won't give you money, but I'm happy to provide water and a snack from my car."

My offer has always been declined...

...until this past Friday, when a man outside the dry cleaner finally accepted.

Rather than feeling joy as I drove away watching him gratefully gulp down the water, I was overcome with sadness.

With a chance to form a relationship, however brief, I settled for a transaction. I didn't even ask his name.

We are called to do better (Galatians 5:14). I won't miss the opportunity next time.

Put me back in, Coach.

Flash Fun A:  "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." (Luke 23:46 NIV)

TTFG: White Rock Lake 1-16-17
TTFG Spot of the Week
White Rock Lake
Monday was a beautiful day, so I went back to ol' reliable and spent some time with God outside at White Rock Lake.  (What is TTFG?)
I experienced a God Wink when this suggested prayer appeared in my Monday reading of Purpose Driven Life, just a few days after my Friday encounter.
