I wonder if the greatest witnessing tool available to us Christians is often pushed aside because of our busyness.
Recently, I was focused on all the items on my seemingly never-ending to-do list.
As I was sitting at a stoplight a friend called me and started lamenting that her son had forgotten his lunch and his belt required by the school’s uniform policy.
She was stressed and trying to get in touch with her husband who’d just dropped her son off at school. She was at home with a new baby feeling groggy from a sleepless night and overwhelmed by her situation.
Her son could probably get his friends to share their lunches with him. But, the belt would be a problem. The school would call her when they noticed the missing belt and require her to bring one. She lives over 20 minutes from the school.
As I sat at the stoplight listening to my friend, I looked to the store off to my right. That store has belts. That store has lunch food.
I was faced with a decision: Could I help?
