SON SHINE 94: FARE SAFE
As the bus conductor asked us to pay for the trip, the elderly man reached for an inner pocket, took out a tightly packed stuff, and started opening layer after layer of nylon and torn newspaper, till he came to the object ? his fare. In the midst of the noise, heat and smoke, other passengers were probably too occupied with how to survive, than to care about a man at the final phase of a life wrinkled by inclement weather.
?For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to the poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.? ? Deuteronomy 15: 11 (KJV)
What you consider the little that you have, is the dream of many.
Let the Son shine in your heart daily.
