Truth When You Need It

An electrician did some work for us - a young guy from Guatamala, a good fellow, an excellent electrician, but with a life out of control - drinking and partying his money away so that he was living in a horrible place and had no car.  When driving him home, we spoke a little about God and a Bible story - he was very attentive as we shared some of our experiences. Apparently, he had met a good woman who was very interested in him, but was not interested in his life-style. He had always defended his life-style, but this time he wondered... "Does God really answer prayer?" We reassured him that He does when it is from the heart. We parted on a good note.

Yesterday, less than two years later, we heard our electrician guy had left behind his irresponsible ways and become an earnest Christian. He had married, and already had a child, and was very happy in his new life. This good news brought to mind:

"Millions of unprejudiced minds — simple seekers for Truth, weary wanderers, athirst in the desert — are waiting and watching for rest and drink. Give them a cup of cold water in Christ's name, and never fear the consequences." (S&H)

You never know. Some of them may be irresponsbile party animals!
