Daddy Fell Into the Well

by | Jun 9, 1998 | Great Commission, Witnessing

The composition teacher asked the class to write about an unusual event that happened during the past week. Little Johnny got up and read his essay.

It began, “Daddy fell into the well last week…”

“Oh, my!” The teacher exclaimed. “Is he all right?”

“He must be,” said the boy. “He stopped yelling for help yesterday.”

We are surrounded in the church, in the workplace, in our community with people in need crying out for help. Sometimes the cries stop and we assume they’re now all right. The truth may well be that they have grown weary of seeing their pleas unanswered.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” (James 1:27).

Do you hear the cries for help?
