Who Sees You As An Angel?

Matthew 1:20
“… Do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.” (NKJV)

The day after we were married, my husband and I were in a car headed for O’Hare Airport when we were hit by a car. We were taken to a hospital and released three hours later with only headaches. But it was now evening, our car had been towed, and the bus lines were closed. An expensive taxi ride would eat into our savings.
A man in the waiting room offered us a ride to the airport. Tired and shook up, we knew it was risky, but we accepted his offer.
“I was in a car accident myself a few months ago,” the stranger said. He would always walk with a limp, but he was thankful to be alive. As he dropped us off at the airport terminal, he gave us $10 and said, “Buy yourselves a good breakfast.”
That accident could have been a blight on our first days together. Instead, because of the kind actions of a stranger, it became one of the best days of our long and happy marriage. A stranger offered to help us and he did so magnificently with his words and actions. He was like an angel sent by God to help us.

The angel Gabriel was a stranger to Joseph and yet he had good news for Joseph.

Who can you help today with encouraging words and actions? Can you make muffins to thank your hair dresser for her good work? Could a friend use a birthday card and small gift to celebrate? The elderly always need encouragement. Choose one thing and then do it!

The End

    We can all do something. It doesn’t have to be a huge tragedy like Hurricane Sandy or the Boston bombing. We can all show a little kindness to strangers and our friends.
