Daily Nugget


Friday, July 22nd, 2011.



Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.


"Together, nine physically handicapped persons conquered Mount Rainier. One of the mountain climbers had an artificial leg. Another was an epileptic. Two were deaf, and five were blind. Despite these handicaps, the nine successfully negotiated the 14,000 foot climb and got back down again. Asked how they managed to perform this amazing feat, one of the blind members of the party said simply, 'We had a lot of help from each other on the trip.' There is no way, the Gospels tell us, that we can successfully negotiate our life’s journey without a lot of help from each other. And the reason is, we are all handicapped. We are all emotionally and spiritually flawed in some way."
(James F. Colaianni)

What a truth! We all do need each other to lean on. Jesus encourages us with these words in John 13:34-35:
“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."

"God, let me be the stabilizing force to my friends, families, and acquaintances.
Amen."
