Not too long ago I was awakened at 3 a.m. by a loud pounding on the door. After I had slowly come to my senses, I mustered the courage to go answer the door. There on my porch was a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, asking for a push.

"Not a chance" I said. "It's three o'clock in the morning!"

Frustrated at the sleep I just lost, I closed the door and returned to bed.

"Who was that?" asked my wife, as I crawled back under the covers.

"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," I answered.

"Did you help him?" she asked.

"No, I did not. It is three o'clock in the morning and pouring outside."

"Well, you have a short memory," my wife said. "Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down and two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!"

She was right. So I got up, dressed, and went out into the pounding rain.

"Hello, are you still there?" I called out into the dark, almost hoping there would be no reply.

"Yes," a voice answered.

I sighed. "Do you still need a push?"

"Yes, please!"

"Where are you?" I asked.

"Over here, on the swing!" **********************************************************

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. -Hebrews 13:16
