DOZ Issue 32 June 2018 - Page 3

Dear Ladies, Welcome to June! A few days ago, I saw a post on social media, and it got me thinking so I decided to share it with you. It was a story of a group of salesmen who were at an airport and running to catch their flight. One of them bumped into a stall and knocked down a display of apples. However, as the apples scattered everywhere, no one stopped. They kept running as they were almost missing their flight. Then one of them stopped and turned around. He knew that going back to do the right thing would mean missing his flight. He called out to his friends and told them he would be on a later flight and then he went back to help the seller gather her apples. Just then he noticed for the first time that the seller was a young girl of about 16 years and she was blind. The poor girl was in tears as she struggled to gather her apples. People walked past but no one stopped to help her. The man got down and began to help her gather the apples. Some had been destroyed so he set those apart and then rearranged her display. When he was done he gave her some money for the damaged apples and apologized for the pain he and his colleagues had caused her. When he turned to go, the girl asked if he was Jesus. He was surprised but admitted that he was not. Then he went on to say that Jesus was kind and gentle and would never have bumped into her display in the first instance. The girl nodded in agreement and then added, “I asked because I had asked Jesus to help me gather the apples.” Now that obviously explains why she thought the man was Jesus. When she prayed, Jesus sent that man. He may not have been the first or only person sent but he was the one who responded. It wasn’t convenient, but he responded. It wasn’t his doing, but he responded. Then I asked myself a crucial question, “Eturuvie, if that had been you, would Jesus have counted on you to miss that flight, and go back to represent Him?” My answer made me realise that I have a long way to go to properly represent Jesus on the earth.
