If you saw a little girl robbed, beaten, and left for dead in a place where you were walking by; if you saw her hand outstretched reaching out for yours; if you stopped long enough to see her tears, her wounds, her bleeding, her desperation, her need; if your compassion moved you deep enough to look and linger longer and you listened long enough to hear her cry........ and if you heard her say between wretched sobs because of her dire need for help; if you heard her say to you: Go tell my father! Go get him! Tell him I'm hurt! Tell him I need him! Tell him I won't make it unless he come!"..................... Would you go? Would you go get her father? Would you tell him she needs him? Would yy tell him to come?
If in awe and pure fear and a total stunness of the moment, if you stayed just a tiny bit longer, and in just a glimpse you saw underneath her two little boys wounded and beaten and robbed too; and if the need overwhelmed you........ They need the help of their father!!!! Seeing them there, how could you possibly not go get him?
I have a friend who wrote to me the other night telling me that she needs prayers, she's having a very rough time. She wrote asking me to pray. And wrote asking me to ask others, too, to pray for her. In all sorts of ways, she's been robbed, she's been beaten, she lays bleeding; and as she cries, so many pass her by. She's not asking for anything other than prayers, she's asking that we will go tell and get her Father! She's asking us to ask Him if He'll come and help her!
Will you go?
Will you prayer for her?
He knows her name and the names of the two boys that lie beneath her. If you will, go get Him! Tell Him to hurry! Tell Him to come! They need Him so.
Thank you in advance to those who stopped to see and who won't pass them by!
"A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper, 'Look after him,' he sad, 'and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.' "Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?" The expert in the law replied, "The one who had mercy on him." Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise.""
Are you "going and doing likewise?" Which one are you?
