Last Saturday we had a “Men’s Prayer Breakfast” and a few men cooked, served, and cleaned. Then on Sunday, we had a “Birthday Luncheon” – what a blessing to see hands honor the Lord with serving, helping, and cleaning. What a nice celebration! God bless all of you that gave, served and helped! The old saying, “many hands make light work” is true to this day. It is such a blessing to see God’s people unify together to accomplish a kindness such as this.
God’s Word instructs us, “So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you’re already doing this; just keep on doing it.” 1Thess 5:11
Randy Frazee has written a book called “The Connecting Church.” He has a son who was born without a left hand. One day in Sunday School the teacher was talking with the children about the church. To illustrate her point she folded her hands together and said, “Here’s the church, here’s the steeple; open the doors and see all the people.”
She asked the class to do it along with her – obviously not thinking about his son’s inability to pull this exercise off. Then it dawned on her that the boy wouldn’t be able to join in.
Before she could do anything about it, the little boy next to his son, a friend of his from the time they were babies, reached out his left hand and said, “Let’s do it together.” The two boys proceeded to join their hands together to make the church and the steeple.
Frazee says, “This hand exercise should never be done again by an individual because the church is not a collection of individuals, but the one body of Christ.”
