“And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.” (Matthew 10:42)

            One kind word at the right time may save a person from suicide. One sermon may inspire a man’s soul and set the course for his future life. One drink may start a person on the road to alcoholism. One wrong example may lead dozens down the wrong path. One decision for Christ will determine future destiny.

An elderly Christian lady resided in a lonely cottage high on a cliff overlooking the sea. She placed a lamp in her front window so that it might act as a small beacon to warn unwary seamen of the treacherous coast. She heard later that the light had been seen and had aided some sailors who were lost in the raging tempest. Over the years many endangered fishermen had come to thank her for her helpfulness.

Will you be the light to show the way?
