While I was making my coffee this morning I was thinking of my son. I was thinking how he needs someone to come along side him and encourage him, be a friend. And then I opened my email and found this "Run Them In" Exactly what I was thinking.
How many times do we see someone, Christian or not, stumble, do something we just dont' understand, lagging behind and we say 'umph, why are they doing that?' We looked down our noses or simply just don't want to get involved. Instead of going to them, in love and being a friend to them, encouraging them, guiding them, just being there. They may be so scared, hurting and/or just simply dont' know what do to. Or how to do it.
It's hard to put ourselves out like that. I struggle with that, too.
There are so many out there who need someone to turn around and run along side them, to 'run them in'.
It ain't roller derby, people. It's life. It's not who gets there first, who run the fastest.
And if we live this life without helping someone along the way, then we've lived a life in vain.
