Life Worth Living


A very young boy… crippled since birth… was hurrying to catch a bus. Carrying gifts under his arm, he was struggling with his crutches. Suddenly, a man bumped into him, knocking his packages in all directions.

The man then paused and scolded the young lad for getting in his way. Another gentleman, seeing the youngster’s distress, quickly picked up the scattered gifts and slipped a 10 dollar bill into his pocket, saying, “I’m sorry! I hope this makes up for your trouble.”

The boy couldn’t remember being shown such kindness, called after him, “Mister, thank you! Sir, are you Jesus?” – – “No,” replied the man, “but I am one of His followers.”
