Words in action.

I went to take my glasses off. No glasses! Only the empty chain. There was no sign of them on the footpath, or on the road we had crossed. Re-entering the restaurant, I paused at the door and inquired of some young people seated there.

A young man appeared. ‘Who lost their glasses? I saw some glasses on my way down the road. ‘What colour are they?’ ‘Would you like me to go back and look for them?’ He returned, carrying the unscratched frames and the two perfect lenses.

It is not those who say, ‘Lord, Lord’, but they who hear God’s word and act upon it. Thank you, Lord, for the fine young man who came to my aid.
