We were driving home from the hospital yesterday.
My husband and I had just taken a family member there, about an hour’s trip from our home.
Suddenly, my husband said that something was wrong.
A young man in a a truck was honking at us.
He pulled up beside our car and told us that our brake lights were not functioning.
He had been behind us and noticed.
Even though it was difficult, he got our attention and alerted us to a potentially dangerous situation.
If drivers in other cars were not able to tell we were braking, we could easily have an accident.
Later on in the day, we found an auto parts store and purchased the necessary replacement bulbs.
This young man could have just driven around us, never thinking about our safety or about helping us.
Instead, he was good to us, even though we were strangers, likely never to meet again.
The Bible tells us that we should be like this.
Consider these words:
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
When we have the opportunity to do something good, something kind, or something considerate, we should do those things for all people–even strangers on the road.
